2013 Te Rere Bordeaux Blend

Description

An impressively opulent and concentrated wine from the stellar 2013 vintage on Waiheke Island. Made by winemaker Luc Desbonnets, a man with the midas touch for making rich wines of great luxury, as evidenced by his string of 90+ scores from Robert Parker. Almost Barossa-like in scope, this wine has massive concentration and a velvety texture that find favour with a lot of drinkers.

Smells

Intense spicy oak with chocolate, vanilla and biscuit, a whiff of mint over top of a core of dark fruit, camphor, mulberry and plum.

Tastes

Super luxurious and velvety, this must be aged in American Oak given the coconut and vanilla essence notes that stud the opulent palate. Awesome as a young wine, this will age well and be at its best around 2019-2023.
