Rod McDonald ‘One Off’ Hawke’s Bay Malbec 2014

Rod McDonald ‘One Off’ Hawke’s Bay Malbec 2014 $31 ★★★★

If you’re someone who gets weak at the knees when they see a beautiful colour, then strap yourself into your support-hose because this wine has the most gorgeous garnet, ruby hue.  It also boasts tobacco leaf, dried herbs, cocoa, blueberry and a gentle meaty character in the mid-palate.  The tannins are dusty, clinging and have just the right amount of ‘chew’ to make it a match for something savoury and slow-cooked.
