Waiheke Island Five Hills Malbec 2017

Price from: $48.00

Clear

Youthful and charismatic on the nose dark plum, chocolate and cranberry immediately drown the senses. Bordering eloquently are notes of subtle savoury herbs, which will intensify in its later years. Once this bully hits the lips and punches with a barrage of fruit, its place in the world is claimed. Red luscious cherries drive the wine through the full length of the palate, delicate cocoa-like tannins calm and relax the journey. It is here to stay.
