Fruit-forward with strawberry and baking spice aromas, tight at first. Zesty red fruits on the palate, polished and round tannins. Easy drinking and after the NZ exchange rate a bargain at $10.

Brought this bad boy to Chile, lugged it around in my suitcase bouncing around for a month before it was opened in Cordoba, Argentina around a camp fire and proper asadito. Argentinean friends were blown away and swore to come to NZ just for their fantastic reds. Well done Ara.

Ripe red fruits, medium acidity, enough tannin to balance the relative sweetness, but still a little flabby. Not trying to complain as this was a supermarket grab in a hurry.

Table Jams with Ricky and Tommy, Alpine Resort, Wanaka, New Zealand. Good wine, really fruity and light but good.
