The 2019 vintage (4*) is a blend of Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot, estate-grown at Matakana and matured for nine months in French oak casks (partly new). Still very youthful, it has deep, purple-flushed colour and a fresh, spicy bouquet. Mouthfilling and fruit-packed, it has strong, plummy, berryish, spicy flavours, fresh acidity, and obvious potential; best drinking 2022+.
