"It's delightfully lifted on the nose showing Black Doris plum, vanilla, warm spice, olive and cedar characters. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and silky mouthfeel combined with lovely spicy complexity, well framed by silky tannins. Medium-full-bodied and attractive with plenty of tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2019

Dark red with purple hues. The nose is full and rich with raspberry and plum, cracked pepper and spice. A soft and supple palate with a fruit forward style. Ripe raspberry and plum are complemented by well integrated subtle oak. 

Stables Reserve offers a sense of history with its name taken from the original Stables where it all started in the heart of the Hawke’s Bay. Gentle in style, the Stables range evokes life’s simple pleasures – warmth, hospitality and conversation.

The growing season started cooler than average but was followed by a very warm and dry January. February cooled bringing perfect ripening conditions followed by a dry March allowing fruit to be harvested in optimum condition. The grapes were crushed and transferred to a fermentation tank. The must was inoculated with a selected yeast strain to enhance varietal character. Twice daily pump overs were performed until the end of fermentation to enhance depth of flavour. The wine was left on skins for an extended period with daily tastings to determine the perfect time before pressing off the wine to achieve structure and mouthfeel. The wine was oak aged for 10 months before bottling.

Food Pairing: Pâté, Moroccan lamb or pepperoni pizza.
