Description

The 2016 vintage for the Hawke's Bay was another standout, almost as good as the previous three. Near perfect growing conditions lead to an immaculately structured, complex Cabernet dominant Bordeaux blend. The wine is just starting to drink nicely (at 3 years of age), but make sure to keep some bottles back - this will be phenomenal drinking from 10 years old onwards.

Smells

Beautifully pure florals - violet, roses and tobacco - with dark fruit notes of plum, cassis, leather and dark chocolate. Everything in place and accounted for...all that's left is to let time do its work...

Tastes

Pristine fruit, with lovely plummy notes, fine grained tannins and a steely graphite focus that betrays the perfect vintage conditions. Wonderful as a young wine, it's still very tight knit, so ideally give this some time in the cellar or otherwise, a ship's decanter for a few hours. Outstanding wine to enjoy between now and 2031 and beyond.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
