Black fruits leap from the glass combined with coffee and new leather.
Fresh plums and blackcurrants combine with flavours of black olives. Subtle notes of freshly cut grass add complexity. The finish is long and lingering.
Ready to drink now, or cellar for up to five years.
Sourced from the highly regarded Gimblett Gravels wine growing district of Hawke’s Bay. The soils are vigour moderating and free draining. This combined with the unique micro-climate provide excellent growing conditions for both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The fruit was carefully monitored and only harvested once it reached optimum physiological ripeness.The perfect blend which is predominately Cabernet Sauvignon (63 per cent) with the remainder with Merlot with a very small (2 per cent) amount of Petit Verdot.
