Product Description

Sun, crystal clear air, cool, elevated vineyards and great winemaking skills give Argentina all the ingredients for world class wines. Journalist Joanna Simon says "As a wine country, Argentina has everything going for it" (The Sunday Times). The Waxed Bat is a masterpiece from our good friend Opi Sadler, winner of two international trophies to date. The wine's name was inspired by memories of his grandfather's cellar - wine bottles sealed with heavy red wax and an occasional bat fluttering in the lamp light. Spicy Shiraz, cassis laden Cabernet and dense Malbec create power and complexity. Smooth enough to drink on its own and terrific with spare ribs or tender prime steaks. Decant an hour in advance.

By Sid Nuncius HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 17 Sep 2014
In spite of the rather gimmicky name, this is a very nice wine indeed. It is a blend of Malbec, Argentina's signature grape, with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon which gives it plenty of flavour. It is full of fruit but nicely balanced with spice and some firmness in the tannins. It's very full-bodied, so don't have it with anything delicately flavoured, but it's really good with robust dishes and red meat, and it makes a very enjoyable glass on its own.

I've had quite a few bottles of The Waxed Bat since it appeared in Laithwaites' list a few years ago, including this 2013 vintage, and I've always thoroughly enjoyed it. Warmly recommended of you like a dark, full-bodied red.
