Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"​This wine was blended from grapes grown within the prestigious Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay. These deep stony soils have excellent drainage and low vigour, ideal for the production of high quality red grapes. Our vineyard sites are close planted and yields per vine are kept low to maximise quality.This is a full bodied and rich Hawkes Bay blend. Densely coloured, it has a bouquet of blackberry and cherry with a subtle oak seasoning, while the palate is softly textured and generous in nature. Due to its well ripened tannins the wine can be enjoyed young, although it also shows the potential to age gracefully and gain further complexity."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Offering great value, the 2016 vintage is a blend of Merlot (44 per cent), Cabernet Sauvignon (30 per cent), Malbec (22 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (4 per cent), matured for a year in French oak barriques (15 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling, with strong, fresh plum, red-berry and spice flavours, showing good complexity, and a well-rounded finish. Drink now or cellar."
