Janet's New Zealand Picks
Sponsored By: TRIALTO WINE GROUP LTD.
DJ (89): This is a rustic, chunky wonder of a wine that is thoroughly worthy of its splendid new Art Deco label. A compelling blend of bonarda, malbec, and syrah, it is full of brambly, peppery, earthy and tobacco-y aromas and flavours. The lower yields of 2012 give this edition extra concentration - it’s weighty and richly fruited, ending on a gorgeous savoury note. Deliciously old fashioned and a perfect match for smoky barbecued beef. La Posta celebrates Mendoza’s traditional winegrowing families, who have steadfastly maintained their Old World farming culture for generations. Tasted July 2014.
