GOLD MEDAL | Bragato Wine Awards 2016.
93/100 FIVE STARS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
92/100 | Bob Campbell, MW.
Superdeal pricing on this excellent, Trophy wining Hawkes Bay Malbec from the 2013 'vintage of a lifetime.' This is a wonderful example of robust Hawkes Bay red wine that, with perfect bottle age, is only just entering its optimal drinking window. The wine is showing beautifully with elegant fruit flavours and fine grainy tannins. Truly superb.
Sam Kim writes "It is elegantly restrained on the nose yet the wine offers full richness on the palate, displaying dark fruit, roasted meat and mixed spice characters with a touch of floral lift. The palate offers bags of tasty flavours, brilliantly structured by fine, firm tannins.”
