Description

100% Gimblett Gravels fruit, 84% Cabernet Sauvignon; 10% Cabernet Franc; 6% Merlot cropped at low levels, the wine spent 18 months in 60% new French Oak barrels to temper and season the opulent fruit flavours. The aromas are dense and reflect the ensuing palate which is incredibly weighty, round and complex... a magnificent Bordeaux style red blend that could easily cellar 2+ decades in quality storage. Enjoy with aged cheddar, red meats and savoury vegetable inspired dishes.

Smells

Strikingly pure and floral, with violets, cedar, iron, tobacco, blackcurrant, plum and liquorice.

Tastes

Fresh and focused with heady concentration, and a solid bed of fine tannins and juicy acid working in perfect harmony. A mix of power, presence and refinement. A wonderful example of the Bordeaux blend from one of the Hawke's Bay's excellent vintages, this is a wine to buy a case of and enjoy over the next 15-20 years.
