VM Merlot Malbec 2011

From the Cellar: Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot Malbec Hawkes Bay 2011 – $

This bottle was really cheap at P&S. I added it to my monthly Pool Room selection back in the day. Should have Walked On By…

Deep scarlet colour. 12.5%.

Slight vegetal nose, indicates unripeness, with grass notes. Some soft red plum fruit aromas.

Red fruits in the mouth; a bit thin, light. Fine tannins, not much structure, no boldness. Malbec typicity does show, but not enough. A cooking wine.
