Sam Kim, Wine Orbit


"It's nicely lifted on the nose showing raspberry, red cherry and ripe apple characters, leading to a brightly flavoured palate that is fruity and smooth. The wine offers youthful vibrancy, finishing juicy and lingering. At its best: now to 2019." Sam Kim Wine Orbit

A bright garnet red in the glass, this wine has an expressive nose brimming with red cherry and blackcurrant as well as hints of aromatic spice and savoury oak. Medium bodied with tantalising juicy fruit flavours of ripe red raspberries, cherries and toasted spice.  Round and full on the palate with a long savoury finish.

Made from Marlborough fruit harvested at optimum flavour maturity. The wine was frequently hand plunged through ferment and underwent 100 percent malolactic fermentation. Drinking well now this wine will also cellar under careful storage conditions for approximately three years to five years from vintage date.

Food Pairing: Well matched with roast lamb or spaghetti and meatballs.

Love this wine. I have been a Shiraz drinker for 30 years but have become allergic to it. This is the nicest wine at this price range than I can now drink??

If we didn’t know we would think this was a $18+ bottle of Pinot :)
