Sun, clear air, cool elevated vineyards and great winemaking skills give Argentina all the ingredients for world class wines. Joanna Simon says: “As a wine country, Argentina has everything going for it” (The Sunday Times). 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 and complexity with bags of ripe fruit. Smooth enough to drink on its own and great with spare ribs, steak or kebabs. If possible, decant first.
