Not Quite Horizontal Malbec 6-Pack - 3 bottles of each
Not Quite Horizontal Malbec 6-Pack
Not quite a horizontal because that is when the wines are all from the same vintage but are from different vineyards or wineries. We only made 1 barrel of the 2015 Wiamauku Malbec so don’t have any left to show off to you.
We do however have an ace up our sleeve with the 2016 Waimauku Malbec which is drinking beautifully with rich flavours of red berries, dark spices, toasty oak and seductive tannins. Only 6 barrels made from a ‘challenging vintage’ that was caused by not what might first jump to mind. Our Malbec is always the last grape we harvest and the 2016 crop was devastated by bees, thousands of them that came from miles around to feed on sweet grape juice as other food became scarce late in the season.
The GOLD medal winning 2015 Hawke’s Bay Malbec was made for export. This Hawke’s Bay wine is packed with warm ripe blackberry and blackcurrant flavours, dark chocolaty richness with generous tannins that are just starting to soften with age.A rewarding wine to cellar for a further 2-7 years, if you can keep your hands off it that long!
