Description

  • Wild berry
  • Earthy 
  • Leather
  • Dry finish

"This is terrific; the beautifully fragrant bouquet shows blackcurrant, blueberry, violet, thyme and toasted nut characters. It's equally satisfying on the palate with excellent weight and fruit purity together with supple texture and silky tannins, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020

This wine displays a deep crimson colour in the glass, accompanied by a brooding bouquet that is complex with hints of wild berry, blackcurrant and leather. The palate is full-bodied, with sweet fruit on entry with flavours of wild berry, doris plum and earthy undertones. The wine has brilliant concentration and flavour, while firm tannins mean that the wine finishes dry.

The vineyard source for these grapes is from the Briant vineyard which is situated between Patutahi and Manutuke, across the Waipaoa River from Matawhero.

Food Pairing: Match with beef dishes such as stroganoff, or a beef & blue cheese burger.
