Description

Harmonie du Soir (previous Reserve label) … like the pinnacle Pope… is only made in the finest vintages. Example 2009, 2010 (no 2011 & 2012 releases) … 2013, 2014 and now this stunning 2015. From here there will be no 2016, 2017, 2018… you’ll be waiting until circa 2026 for the scheduled release of 2019 Harmonie du Soir. For absolute clarity… Puriri Hills will have made Harmonie du Soir only 5 of 11 vintages. The only other NZ red I am aware of with such stringent vintage quality protocols is Esk Valley Terraces. Many wine aficionados and critics consider the Puriri Hills wines to be some of the best in the country, as do we. A red with genuine ‘cult’ status. Bob Campbell MW rated this wine 97/100 and the Fine Wine Delivery Co team agree 100% with our equally 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 you raise the glass to your lips and take your first sip. Don’t miss this twin 97/100 2015 release… you’ll be waiting at least until 2026 to secure the next Harmonie du Soir.

Smells

Beautiful fragrances of wildflowers, graphite, olive tapenade, 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 dark fruits, 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 2015 Puriri Hills Reserve will be seriously long-lived. Savour now through 2030 (and likely beyond).
