Description

  • French oak
  • Plum & blackberry
  • Spice & chocolate
  • Silky tannins

"Offering excellent fruit purity with stylish complexity, the wine shows blackcurrant, dark cherry, violet and cedar characters with a hint of tobacco. The concentrated palate delivers ripe fruit intensity together with silky texture and fine polished tannins, finishing lingering and delectable. At its best: now to 2028" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2021

This delicious Hawkes Bay Cabernet Merlot displays flavours of ripe black plums and wild blackberry with a hint of spice. The palate is weighty with balanced acidity and a silky fine structure. Highlights of black Doris plum and dark chocolate with a toasty oak note lift the palate to showcase silky tannins with great length.

W5 Cabernet Merlot underwent malolactic fermentation while aging in a mix of new and seasoned older French oak.  It was then gently extracted, blended and prepared for bottling.

Drinking beautifully now this wine can be enjoyed young or with careful cellaring will mature over the next 5 years or beyond.

Food Pairing: Matched perfectly with Beef Wellington and crispy roast potatoes.
