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."


Reviews for the 2018 vintage below…


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Beautifully fruited and wonderfully composed, the wine shows dark plum, blackcurrant, floral, vanilla and toasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is supple and rounded. It is pristine and elegant, while offering stylish complexity and delectable intensity, well supported by fine, polished tannins. At its best: now to 2022."


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."
