  • Commended, International Wine Challenge, 2019

The dense, luscious Waxed Bat Reserve is from remarkable winemaker Opi Sadler. He takes Cabernet and Malbec from the best, highest vineyards and long ages the wine in barrel. Waxed Bat’s hallmark velvet black fruit, taken a notch richer and deeper.

The Waxed Bat takes its name from the bats that used to flutter in the candle-lit cellar of Opi Sadler’s father. Fast forward several decades and it’s Opi who’s working his magic in the cellar – and taking the quality of his legendary Waxed Bat to new heights in the form of this very special Reserve edition. Cassis scented Cabernet and spicy Malbec have been patiently barrel aged to create a silky smooth, round wine that retains all the vibrant fruit intensity that makes regular Waxed Bat so popular. Last year’s was a Trophy winner. The wine shows that Malbec and Cabernet from Argentina’s high altitude Mendoza region are a match made in heaven. Smooth enough to drink solo but at its best with roast lamb or steak. Decant early if you can.
