Description

Awatea is of such a quality that most wineries in the Hawke's Bay would be pleased to call it their top cuvee. The new 2018 Awatea is another superlative example, aromatically incredibly complex and silky and medium-bodied on the palate. The fruit purity is again exceptional and the concentration indicates it will reward medium-term cellaring for the next 5 to 10 years.

Smells

Instantly appealing, the floral violet notes mingle with blackcurrant, plum, pencil shavings and iron ore.

Tastes

Supple and mouth-filling, the only difference between Awatea and Coleraine in their youth is Coleraine's more tightly wound and concentrated fruit core, while 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 cracking wine for a Friday night with a great cut of sirloin and some good company.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
