FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
An exciting Hawkes Bay version of this European varietal. Seriously attractive wine that oozes ripe fleshy characters but ends with a serious, more robust finish. A huge staff favourite.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It is instantly appealing on the nose showing dark plum, blackcurrant, cocoa and violet characters with an elegant cedar nuance. The palate delivers superb fruit purity and power, wonderfully enhanced by velvety mouthfeel and rich texture. The wine is opulent and sumptuous with a persistent silky finish. At its best: 2018 to 2024."
