A black grape variety, Malbec produces in deep purple-red wines with full-bodied mouthfeel and abundant tannins.


Malbec wines contain deep dark fruit characteristics such as luscious cherry, blackberry and plum, with dark chocolate, pepper and vanilla aromas apparent on the nose.  

Regional characteristics

The long and dry summers in New Zealand’s Hawkes Bay region makes it the ideal place for us to grow and ripen Malbec.

The free-draining, gravelly soils and the warm temperatures of the Gimblett Gravels naturally result in fruit that is deeply coloured, richly flavoured and perfumed with blackberry, plum, vanilla and peppery spices, and ripe tannins.




Food matching

This powerful variety is well-matched with rich, robust Italian food, such as wild mushroom risotto, or can be perfectly paired with a tangy serving of Spanish Manchego cheese.
