Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, intense magenta, with ripe wild blackberry, red plum, cherry cedar and rosemary all jumping from the glass, Estate Vineyards Cabernets/Merlot ’18 is fresh, rich and fruit-driven. The palate shows notes of ripe cherry, date and blackcurrant with an even and sustained weight throughout.

Consistently overdelivering, Estate Vineyards Cabernets/Merlot ’18 remains an ode to balance, ripeness and modern Hawke’s Bay fruit-purity.

The individual parcels of each variety, from each plot, were de-stemmed before a traditional warm fermentation, followed by extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were pressed, returned to tank for malolactic fermentation, then run off to a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barrels for 11 months’ maturation before blending. The wines were regularly topped and racked, throughout maturation, blended and traditionally egg-white fined before bottling."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Gorgeous nose; it’s fabulously expressed on the nose showing dark plum, black cherry and toasted almond characters with a dried herb nuance. The palate displays lovely weight and fruit purity together with discreet oak infusion, beautifully supported by fine texture and polished tannins. A wonderfully composed Bordeaux-style offering stunning value. At its best: now to 2025."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Full-coloured, with a fresh, berryish bouquet, it is medium-bodied, with vibrant, ripe red-berry and plum flavours, showing moderate complexity, fresh acidity and gentle tannins. Enjoyable young, it offers good drinking now to 2021."
