” ONLY 29 DOZEN AVAILABLE - $85.00 bottle at Cellar Door - Due to Covid’s dramatic crashing of Waiheke Island’s tourism, this delicious, smooth, 5-year-old Merlot Malbec Red Blend is being exclusively offered to Fine Wine Delivery customers at $27.99 per bottle... a monstrous saving/discount of $57.00.

We offered 240 dozen of the 2016 Cabernet Merlot Malbec 2-weeks ago. We have 29 dozen left. This $85.00 Waiheke Island meets Right Bank Bordeaux style Prestige Blend... is a Red wine lovers Windfall @ $27.99...

Grown & made on Peacock Sky’s boutique (only 6,500 vines) vineyard in the heart of Waiheke Island, and without the use of pesticides. It’s an uncompromising, tiny production with every critical step from picking to selection to plunging, all done by hand. The butterfly depicted on the label symbolises migration and new life. In my mind it conjures images of a picnic blanket spread on the lush grassy knoll among the vines, presiding over the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf, with tasty nibbles and a glass this delicious 2016 Merlot Malbec at hand. Heavenly on every level... what life should be!

The Wine...

Lifted aromas of Rose petal, dark berry coulis, cinnamon and nutmeg... giving way to freshly crushed herbs and subtle dusty, vanilla oak. The fleshy berried Malbec makes a perfect partner to the Merlot adding freshness and energy to its dark, plumy fruit flavours which are generously concentrated. The tannins are silky smooth and finely structured, adding length and drive to the rounded fruit. Perfect drinking now at 5-years... it will be in a great drinking window through 2023... enjoy with your favourite roasted red meat and vegetable dishes.

Our panel gave this 5-year aged Merlot Malbec blend a well-deserved 94/100... uncompromisingly crafted and hand made at every step, it’s in a delicious drinking window. We could understand tourists being keen to put this $85.00 Estate Red Blend in their baggage after visiting the winery... and that is where most of it is sold. Not now though... Covid-19 has devastated tourism to the Island eventually forcing the owners to cash up this $85.00 Red at a staggering $57.00 bottle discount... grab your share quickly at just $27.99 and savour its silky development. Enjoy, Jeff
