Matawhero 'Church House' Malbec Gisborne 2013 13%
Bold and broody bouquet with black fruits of dark baked plum, black currant and Black Cherry; a devil's chocolate icing and mocha coffee bean suggestion; youthful, simple, fruity and distinctive.
On the palate - dry, wild and fruity - lots of black fruit flavors again centering black cherry and baked plum; lots of acidity heightens the tannins (medium+); moderate oak.
Overal this is a very youthful expression and a wine I would like to see mature for 2 more years. Balanced (yet youthful), medium length and medium complexity.
Drinkable now with food.
4 Stars
