The Waxed Bat is one of Argentina’s most original and exciting wines, now with more than a 1,000 5-star reviews. It’s a sumptuous blend of three great grapes, crafted by the Malbec magician Opi Sadler – a terrific, velvety, black fruit and spice red.
Bold, smooth, black fruit, violets and a liquorice tang

Opi Sadler is behind many of our most popular Argentine reds. And for good reason - he is a magician of a winemaker. He learnt his skills from an early age in the dark cellars of his grandfather. His family had always made wine and Opi took a healthy interest. That was despite being a little spooked by the sleeping bats that always seemed to come to life as he crept down to the cellar with his candle. He remembers vividly how they'd knock into the it and leave wax prints all over his grandfather’s cellar, hence the name of this wine. Spicy, liquorice-scented Shiraz, cassis-laden Cabernet and dense Malbec create a wine with bags of appealing ripe fruit. Smooth enough to drink solo and great with spare ribs or veggie wraps. Open early.
