GIMBLETT GRAVELS SUPERDEAL
What a winner this Beach House blend is. 3 of the previous vintages took out the Cabernet Dominant Red Wine Trophy at the Hawkes Bay Wine Awards and the 2018 is sure to be another brilliant performer in the show rounds. This is robustly weighted, dense and powerful wine from a producer who always puts a lot of flavour in the bottle. The 2018 is already approachable but will be a cellar star for those who chose to lay this deserving wine down. It's an absolutely amazing bargain for anyone looking for top flight Hawkes Bay red wine at an affordable price point.
Vinted from 65.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27.4% Malbec and 7.3% Cabernet Franc. Punchy dark fruit flavours are underpinned by firm tannin structure and creamy rounded acidity on the finish.
The winery writes "This is a dark and brooding beast with fruits of the forest including Black Doris plum and spiced cherry. It is rich and powerful on the palate with a silky mouthfeel and well-pitched tannins. Attractively rounded with upfront fruit flavours this wine is very attractive now but will certainly reward with time in the cellar. Drink now through till 2030."
