Description

Awatea is of such a quality that many Hawke's Bay wineries would be pleased to have it as their top cuvee. 2017 Awatea is another superlative red from a very tricky vintage benefitting from large proportions of declassified Coleraine in the final blend (2017 being Cabernet dominant). Very approachable in its youth - aromatically complex, silky and medium-bodied on the palate. The fruit purity is great, and the concentration indicates it will reward medium-term cellaring for the next 5+ years.

Smells

Instantly appealing, the floral violet notes mingle with blackcurrant, plum and graphite.

Tastes

Supple and mouth-filling, Awatea shows off a peacock's tail of luxurious black and red fruits. Amply structured and full of pure pleasure in its youth, it's a great, reward yourself Friday red best enjoyed with a quality cut of sirloin and good company. enjoy now or cellar 5+ years with confidence.
