Description

"Youthfully charming and delightfully fruited, the wine shows Black Doris plum, blackcurrant, cedar, mixed spice and floral characters, leading to a succulent palate that is pristine and beautifully flowing. The wine delivers lovely fruit purity together with elegant spicy complexity, finishing lingering and silky. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2019

Dense ruby red in colour , this wine is silky and smooth with layered flavours of mixed ripe berries, wild blackberries and a hint of spice.   Savoury toasted oak combine with new leather and mixed Chrismas cake spice to add interest and complexity. Silky tannins and well balanced acidity provide a luscious mouth-feel and lead to a warm long-lasting finish.

Grapes for this wine came from certain selected vineyards in the Hawke's Bay where they were harvested in the cool of the evening once they had reached maximum maturity.   Once settled it was then racked to seasoned French oak barrels where it underwent secondary fermentation. Drink now or carefully cellar for up to five years from vintage date.

Food Pairing: A perfect match with fillet steak and seasonal vegetables.
