Tironui Estate Hawke’s Bay Malbec/Cabernet 2010

23-Sep-2014
Richard and Jennifer Brown have moved back to Hawke’s Bay after residing in Malta for a number of years. They will be enjoying the ability to be more closely connected to the wine they produce from their 2.025 ha vineyard on the slopes below ‘Sugarloaf’ in Taradale, They planted their site with Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon in 2002, releasing their first wine, a Merlot/Malbec with the 2005 vintage. Since then a series of Bordeaux-inspired blends of differing varietal proportions have been released, each reflecting what the growing season has provided. The vineyard is tended by Blake Herbison and the winemaking under Chris Harrison, who took over from Bruce and Anna-Barbara Helliwell. Here, I review the 2010 Tironui Estate blend. www.tironuiestate.com
