Description

The second release of Harmonie du Soir… Many wine aficionados consider the Puriri Hills wines to be some of the best in the country, all the while maintaining their ‘cult’ status. Bob Campbell MW rated this wine 97/100 and FWDCo agree 100% with this very near perfect rating. There are very few wines in New Zealand better than this and very likely none at this money – rich, smooth Merlot notes are bulked up by the Cabernet family with Malbec helping to bolster tannin and weight, the wine is great upon release but will reward with 10+ years of careful cellaring. “Harmonie du Soir” means Evening Harmony in French and trust us when we say everything is in harmony when this wine is consumed.

Smells

Beautiful fragrances of wild flowers, pipe tobacco, cedar, cassis, dried plum, leather, violet, soy... So much going on and so pure. A dead ringer for top Right Bank Bordeaux.

Tastes

Succulent, supple and concentrated, with layers upon layers of generous fruit, fine tannins and bright, refreshing acidity. Just so pure and elegant with savoury nuances beginning to emerge now, but the freshness of the wine is remarkable and shows why Judy doesn't like to release her wines until they're ready. This 2014 Puriri Hills Reserve will be seriously long lived, and at this special price, you simply can’t have too much of it. Savour now through 2030 (and likely beyond).
