Another great New Zealand example of the widely-grown Spanish red. We grow it in the stony, free-draining and warm soils of the Gimblett Gravels, one of only a very few New Zealand wineries producing this wine.

Expert Reviews

5 Stars.Dark, fragrant, full-bodied red, savoury and complex, with concentrated, ripe blackberry, spice and dark chocolate flavours. Stylish, with good texture and richness and a long, firm finish. Winestate Winestate 1 Oct-09

Highly Recommended. Lovely, ripe plummy tobacco varietal aromas. Black cherry/red berry spicy flavours linger on a fine palate balanced by savoury tannins. A very good expression of the variety. Lester Jesberg Winewise

4 Stars & Best Wine of 2008. Warm, savoury and dense. Full, purple flushed colour, with sweet oak aromas, a plump mid palate of dark blackberryish fruit, fine grained tannins, and excellent texture and harmony. One judge rated it five stars. Winestate Annual 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Ruby red with crimson.

Aroma

Wild raspberry and plum fruit aromas with spice with a little vanillin from oak barrels.

Palate

Fully ripened fruit from our temperate conditions does not produce jammy or porty characters as can happen in a hotter climate. Malbec adds depth, weight and complexity to the wine, increasing the complexity. This is an elegant wine, with firm but not heavy tannin structure. The texture is silky, but with substance, almost like a combination of Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. There is great persistence of the wild fruit flavours on the finish.
