SILVER MEDAL 92 POINTS | Decanter World Wine Awards
Left Field allows the Te Awa masterminds to create traditional varietals with an interesting edge and this 2019 Hawke's Bay Malbec is another excellent release from this value range. Gimblett Gravels fruit was fermented in steel vats before extended time in French and American oak. The resulting wine carries plush fruit flavours and delish Christmas cake spice. Top notch.
Decanter World Wine Awards write "Perfumed black fruit nose of cherry, plum, violets. Generously fruity palate, creamy core with meaty hints and soft ripe tannins."
The winery writes "Inky dark, smooth and spicy. Do you dare to chase adventure under stormy skies? Fill your glass and set sail on smooth waves of Leftfield Malbec and we’ll take your heart to the open seas."
