“Beautifully ripe and lifted, the inviting bouquet shows dark berry, game, espresso and nutmeg characters with a hint of dried herb complexity. It is succulent and finely textured on the palate, and displays attractive fruit intensity and weight, nicely structured by fine, chalky tannins. The wine is fruity and sturdy at the same time, and offers lovely drinking.” Sam Kim, May 2017
Winemakers Notes "Malbec and Gisborne are made for each other. Spring comes early and the summers are warm and sunny – just the sort of conditions that Malbec loves. This wine is based on a parcel of fruit in Hexton, which is just outside the Gisborne city limits."
If you are buying New Zealand Malbec, you should be buying it from Coopers Creek. Always over delivers!!
We jumped on this deal. This wine is drinking beautifully right now. Black Doris Plum, Bosenberry, Choclatey notes, powdery tannins and satisfying finish. Try this wine with a steak for a match made in heaven.
