The fruit for this wine came from the Bell Family vineyard in Hexton, just on the outskirts of Gisborne city. This was the first crop off a block which was planted with a new clone of Malbec called the 'Dr Rod Clone' named after Dr Rod Bonfiglioli, an enthusiastic vinophile who helped transform NZ wine as we know it. Vintage 2015 was one of the best in recent history for red grapes in Gisborne and summer seemed to go on and on, allowing fabulous colour and flavour development. This is a real treat for red wine fans.

Colour

The colour in this wine is stunning. A black core leads to a bright red-purple rim

Nose

This wine shows the classic 'wild berry' character that typifies New Zealand Malbec. Black Doris plum and savour notes back this up. A touch of oak completes the picture.

Palate

This full bodied red has an excellent balance between fruit, acid and tannin. The overall effect is to coat the palate from front to back and side to side. There is a strong core of sweet black fruit on the finish.
