Description

Esk Valley Artisanal wines tell the story of the Old-World craft and our New World terroir. And certainly, the legendary skills and passion of winemaker Gordon Russell are wrapped up in this exciting 2021 Malbec Cabernet Merlot blend. From the deep stony soils of the Gimblett Gravels, the three parcels were separately fermented in open top concrete fermenters with traditional hand plunging. After further maceration on skins, they were pressed to 225l French Barriques (Judicious 20% new) for 18-months. Then the final blend was made before bottling… and what a blend it is. This powerhouse Kiwi Red Bargain will live for 10-years… but is so in harmony already you can open tonight.

Smells

heady aromas of dark plums, black currants, cedar, fresh tobacco leaves, graphite, lifted pepper notes and an exotic array of dark spices.

Tastes

plush black fruit welcomes the tastes buds with smooth, mouth coating tannins that cling to the cheeks, balanced by a fresh, juicy finish, capped off with lingering toasty flavours giving a warmth that compliments and adds to the complexity. Good drinking now through 2025-2030, perfect with all your favourite BBQ meats.
