About the Wine
This enjoyable red wine created by Te Awa is crafted in Hawke's Bay. You won't find this wine stocked in multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Hatch Mansfield. Left Field Malbec is an interesting wine, made from Riesling grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added-sulphites.
Malbec is a deeply coloured, intense and tannic, but fruity red. Since Argentina has almost taken it on as its own, it's grown increasingly in popularity. Typically Malbec has flavour characteristics of baked plums, black cherry, violets, sweet spice and sometimes coffee.
- Red Plum
Left Field wines are the birthplace of the unexpected, the weird and wonderful. Taking a whimsical approach to exploration, creativity and imagination. The range includes Albariño fast becoming a favourite. Its delicate aromatic notes of citrus, melon and white flower duel with the underlying briny character so distinct to this variety. Refreshing and crisp, enough yet with enough texture and weight to tempt Chardonnay devotees, could Albariño be the perfect white grape?’
The islands here stretch nearly 1,000 miles north to south, and the climate varies from subtropical in Auckland, to positively perishing in the south. 2018 will be remembered by many wineries in here as a year for the record books.Explore New Zealand
