Apart from the spectacular Polynesian name and label winemaker Heifara Swartvagher chose to honor his Tahitian mom, the wine is classic ripe Malbec. With firm tannins and solid fruits, it's full of structure as well as blackberry flavors. It has spice, dry tannins at the core and is still young. Drink from 2018.
