Description

Puriri Hills top wine is appropriately named ‘Pope’ – Originally named after Ivan Pope, the 2013 vintage is a blend of 70% Merlot, 10% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec. A perfect vintage and one that redefined quality in the region, Puriri Hills Pope saw nearly 2 years in 75% new French Oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Bottled under only the finest cork, it’s a wine that will show its best from 2022 onwards and live for who knows how long – 25-30 years conservatively if well cellared. This 2013 Pope is the greatest ever released and at 6 years of age is approachable now, we suggest making the investment into a case and enjoy over the coming decades.

Smells

A bouquet of astonishing quality and concentration – complex notes of exotic perfumes including violets, cassis, dried plum, nutmeg, graphite, leather and a hint of dark chocolate and liquorice.

Tastes

Whopping concentration and great beauty simultaneously, delicate perfumes and dark cherries, succulent and creamy but with purity of fruit that is unlike anything you will have tasted from NZ before. An amazingly complete wine – hard to imagine how it could possibly be much better. Grab what you can afford… the 2013 vintage is a masterpiece savour, share and impress through to 2040.
