Left Field Malbec 2017
100% Malbec from two select parcels of fruit from Te Awa's Gimblett Gravels vineyards in Hawkes Bay.
After picking in the cool of morning, the grapes were gently processed to open top fermenters. Fermentation ensued after a few days of cold soak on the skins. The young wine was drained to tank prior to barrelling down for 18 months maturation in French oak barrels. After blending it was gently stabilised and bottled.
This is a Malbec which takes you on a journey down a dark alleyway, where the brooding and intense characters of blackberry and liquorice meet the heroically proportioned mass of dark chocolate, all draped in smooth fine velvet!

"A juicy, supple, luscious New Zealand red wine made from the Malbec grape, which is usually more associated with Argentina. However, this rendition is lovely with lots of fleshy black plum flavours."
