Malbec and Gisborne are made for each other. Spring comes early and the summers are warm and sunny – just the sort of conditions that Malbec loves. This wine is based on a parcel of fruit in Hexton, which is just outside the Gisborne city limits. The fruit was harvested in pristine condition and trucked overnight to our winery in Auckland. Following vinification, the wine was matured for around a year in barrel.
