Ruby red with purple rim.
Dark berries, coffee and a hint of leather.
A rich and full plate with many layers. Flavours of ripe dark berries combine with spice and a subtle pepper note. A fine tannin structure with a luscious palate and a lingering finish.
Approachable now and will continue to develop positively for five years and beyond.
Sourced from vineyards across the Hawke’s Bay wine-growing district. The soil types are free draining and vigour moderating, providing a great base for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The fruit was carefully monitored during ripening and harvested in the cool evening at maximum flavour maturity and physiological ripeness.
