SILKY SMOOTH IN NAME AND NATURE.
GOLD MEDAL | NZ Organic Wine Awards
FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Rod McDonald's supercool One Off range of small batch wines has created a huge following and this excellent 2018 Sangiovese (85%) and Cabernet (15%) blend will do nothing but enhance that reputation. Bringing together spicy Sangiovese (the grape of Chianti) with the power and drive of Cabernet Sauvignon, this exciting wine is a thoroughly modern style with silky smooth palate weight, underlying spiced plum and tobacco notes and mouthfilling richness. It's fantastic; a warm and inviting wine that is sure to have everyone at the table jostling for a second glass. The only downside is that it's a one off and won't be repeated. We strongly advise you to get your share of this special wine while you can. Go.
The 2018 Silky Smooth is a blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winery writes "Drink by the fireside or gently chilled on a hot summer’s day. Organic perfumed yet earthy, flowers and tobacco, powerful and so silky smooth … a border skirmish in a bottle"
Sam Kim writes "Youthfully charming and fragrant, the wine shows dark plum, spiced cherry, thyme, olive and toasted almond characters. It is succulent and finely textured on the palate with lovely fruit purity together with refreshing acidity and chalky tannins, making this delightful blend a fabulous food partner."
