Brookfields Hawke's Bay Sun Dried Malbec (2019)

Promoted as 'Malbec on steroids', the 2019 vintage (5*) was made from grapes sun-dried to concentrate their sugars and flavours, then matured for a year in French and American oak casks. If you like your reds sturdy, sweet-fruited and smooth, this is for you. Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling and fragrant, with rich, plummy, spicy flavours and supple tannins. A top vintage of this label, powerful and lacking the rusticity often seen in Malbec, it's already delicious.
