Hinemoa Estate Niko Malbec 2015

If you’re looking for something a bit different look no further than this interesting Malbec from Omaha Beach, just north of Auckland. The vineyard these grapes are sourced from come from the hills overlooking the beach and are planted on north-facing slopes which maximise the sun’s exposure. The result? A wine that’s fruit forward and filled with plums and violets with a vanilla oak thread weaving through subtly in the background.

3.5 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer "Deep ruby, clear and youthful on the rim with powerful dark fruit flavours and a bold spicy overtone. Complex layers of dark fruit flavours give this wine its shine and X factor. Very good quality from a surprising corner of the wine planet – Omaha, north of Auckland."
