Fragrant, dark, rich and supple, the very graceful 2017 vintage (5*) of this estate-grown Waipara red was matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). A notably refined example of Malbec, it is full-bodied, with dense, ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours. Best drinking 2022+.
