Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"'Sun-Dried' wines have been made since the 5th century BC – 'Amarone' wines from northern Italy being the most famous. Intensely dark, this ‘Sun-Dried’ Malbec shouts dark ripe plum, dried, herbs, spice, cigar box, and earthy tannins all perfectly supported by the oak. This wine has an enticing mouthfeel due to the weight and fullness on the mid palate. The 2019 vintage follows its illustrious predecessors with aplomb. Once again Malbec on steroids comes to mind. This wine is generous in all departments, the 2019 ‘Sun-Dried’ Malbec will compliment most red meats."


Reviews for the 2018 vintage below…


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Promoted as 'Malbec on steroids', the 2018 vintage was made from grapes sun-dried to concentrate their sugars and flavours, then matured for a year in French and American oak casks. Full-bodied, with deep, purple-flushed colour, it is vibrantly fruity and supple, with strong plum and spice flavours, oak complexity and a smooth finish. Highly approachable in its youth, it should be at its best 2020+."


4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, March 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Peter Robertson, owner and winemaker of Brookfields is one of New Zealand’s most experienced winemakers, accumulating huge knowledge of techniques since beginning his career in 1974. Drying grapes in the sun prior to fermentation dates back to the early Greek and Italian times (like 6th century BC early!) Designed to concentrate the sugars and hence the body and complexity – it’s a method that lends itself to malbec magically! Thing black doris plums, boysenberry and cocoa characters, meaty textures and smooth, elastic tannins make for a very silky, succulent red wine that’ll win hearts at any occasion."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Richly fruited and magnificently complex, the bouquet shows blackberry, mulberry, cedar, cocoa and smoked game characters. The palate is concentrated and wonderfully weighted, delivering superb fruit intensity and silky texture, backed by fine, chalky tannins. The wine is sturdy and brooding, and finishes persistent and pleasingly dry. At its best: 2019 to 2024."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
