A 'one off', this wine was the result of winemaker Jason Stent making a special release for the Hawkes Bay Wine Auction, where barrels get sold for charity. Two barrels were kept aside and bottled with addition of around 2% Cabernet Sauvignon which Jason felt made a more complete wine. Intense and dark, this has a bit of mystery and intrigue. A potent mix of scented dark florals and a hint of feral. It is rich and weighty on the palate yet has an almost electric energy.
96/100 Gourmet Traveller Wine, February 2019
"Dark berry, violet, new leather and plenty of spicy French oak character. Seamless wine with sweet fruit nicely counterpoised by rounded tannins. Accessible now but with obvious cellaring potential".
