"St John" Hawkes Bay Malbec 2012
TOP NZ SPECIALITY RED - Cuisine Magazine June 2014
Our Hawkes Bay SV Malbec comes from fruit grown on our Red Metals Vineyard. Before we bought the property it was owned by a gentlemen by the name of St John Yorke (note however that this St John is pronounced SIN-jin). Vintage 2012 was a challenge in Hawkes Bay but our Malbec was in great condition at harvest. It was barrel aged for a year and has been bottled without fining.
Incredible colour! Saturated black core running to a deep purple rim.
Typical Malbec with masses of wild black fruits coupled with savoury hints and deliciously spicy oak.
At bottling this wine was full of youthful vitality. Firm yet fine-grained tannins balanced by loads of juicy black fruit in the mid palate.
Already approachable, but we expect this wine to cellar well for a number of years.
Rounded tannins and ripe berry flavours make this wine a great accompaniment to many meat dishes such as lamb, venison, beef and game. Many rich sauces go well with this wine, as will roast garlic and vegetables.
Suggested wine list description
Masses of wild black fruits coupled with savoury hints and deliciously spicy oak.
Independent Reviewer’s Comment
"This deeply coloured malbec displays characters true to the malbec grape variety. Dark fruit, spice, talc and sasparilla (similar to root beer) aromas give interest on the nose, and the palate is solidly built, with sustained ripe flavours, good depth, and dry tannins in support" Cuisine Magazine Sept 2013
