  • Bronze, International Wine & Spirit Competition, 2019

The Waxed Bat is one of Argentina’s most original and exciting wines, now with thousands of dedicated fans. It’s a sumptuous blend of three great grapes, crafted by the Malbec magician Opi Sadler – a terrific, velvety, black fruit and spice red.

When it comes to natural resources for winemaking, there are few places to beat Argentina. Sun, clear air, cool elevated vineyards and great winemaking skills, and the country has proved it with some world class wines. The Waxed Bat is a triumphant creation from our good friend Opi Sadler, winner of two international Trophies to date and winemaker at Andean Vineyards. This terrific wine is named after the bat that, when Opi was a boy, knocked over a candle and left wax prints all over his grandfather’s cellar. Spicy, liquorice scented Shiraz, cassis laden Cabernet and dense Malbec create power with bags of ripe fruit. Smooth enough to drink on its own and great with spare ribs, steak or kebabs (veggie or meat). If possible, decant first.
