Coopers Creek ‘Select Vineyards – Saint John’ Hawke’s Bay Malbec 2013

Malbec from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Oct-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is full with good volume and presence, the fruit aromatics a little restrained, showing ripe blackberries and plums with fragrant red florals entwined with dark herb, spice and earthy elements. The aromatics open up with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich, lush, plush and succulent flavours of dark-red berryfruit and plums, along with subtle notes of spice and suggestions of herbs and earth. The fruit is up-front and mouthfilling and is balanced by fine, grainy tannin structure with integrated acidity. The wine carries positively to a full, sweet-fruited and textured finish. This is a fulsome, sweet-fruited Malbec with succulent dark berry and plum flavours and plenty of structure. Match with roasted game meat dishes over the next 6-8+ years. Fruit from the ‘Red Metals’ vineyard, previously owned by Mr St John York’, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in seasoned oak. 18.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $28.00
