Hinemoa Estate Moana Malbec Merlot 2016

Just 40 minutes north of Auckland, Matakana is home to a small number of wineries producing, for the most part, deliciously elegant red wines. This blend of two classic French varieties is great example of this. Filled to the brim with ripe plums, strawberries and a savoury spice, its soft and well structured we think drinking perfectly well now. Hinemoa Estate is well known for producing wines that go great with food and this is no exception. Try it with a fillet steak or a sharp, hard cheese for a perfect pairing.

3.5/5, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer "Here’s a juicy little number from Omaha Beach north of Auckland. Malbec’s dry, dark and fruity flavours put forward big spicy flavours while Merlot’s softness rounds out the palate, adding flesh and a smooth finish. Drinks well now and in the near future.
