20/20 |  Raymond Chan

Tom is the flagship release from Church Road - an important wine that honours the founding father of red wine making in Hawkes Bay - Tom McDonal.

This is an exquisite example of modern Hawkes Bay winemaking. Merlot dominant (62%) with Cabernet adding the underlying power, this is our favourite Tom to date - a bit more ballsy that the 2013 and in our view, all the better for it. This is world class red wine in any context; by any yardstick. Bravo.

Each bottle is individually numbered and presented in a stunning Church Road TOM branded gift box.

Description

Raymond Chan writes: "20/20. Impenetrable black-red colour with slight purple on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is very firm and tightly composed with concentrated and intense aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants and cassis liqueur with iron-earth minerals and an array of intense perfumes. This has primary fruit, freshness and aromatic clarity. Full-bodied, the palate features richness, density, great concentration and beautifully ripened fruit, showing blackberries, black plums, blackcurrants and cassis. The fruit is succulent and luscious with great vitality and freshness. Nuances of Gimblett Gravels iron-earth, pencilly and cedary oak unfold. The structure is very fine-grained, near-soft in texture, refined and with a degree of accessibility, and the wine flows with energy, poise and linearity, carrying to a fine, tight, vibrant and minerally finish. This wine shows Gimblett Gravels personality and the finesse and accessibility of Merlot to perfection. This will evolve over the next 10-15 years. 62% Merlot from the ‘Gimblett’ vineyard and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘Redstone’ Bridge Pa vineyard. "
