Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"A blend of fruit from several Hawkes Bay vineyards, a region considered to be New Zealand’s home for the Bordeaux varietals Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruit is taken predominantly from the renowned Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district, namely Omahu Gravels, Ngakirkiri and Twyford Gravels. The free-draining gravelly soils and warm conditions of the Gimblett Gravels encourage low yields and devigourated vines.

This wine promotes layers of berry and dark plum flavours combined with complex cedar and savoury characters. This wine is richly concentrated in style and is complemented by fine-grained tannins, ensuring the wine is approachable and capable of developing further complexity with medium-term aging."


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2016 Vintage)
"Intense crimson-edged blackberry hue with an attractive bouquet of savoury oak, pencil box, blackcurrant and woody herbs that carry through to the palate where there is refreshing brightness of mint infusing the earthy savoury undertones and the succulent plum and blackberry fruit. The tannins are velvety and firm and there are hints of cigar box on the finish where the purity of the fruit and the savouriness of the oak linger harmoniously."
