A full bodied red wine from Hawkes Bay one of the oldest wine regions in New Zealand.
The fruit for this wine was grown entirely on the gravelly free draining soils of the Gimblett Gravels growing region. The wine was aged for 18 months in 100% French oak, 43% new.
This densely coloured wine shows lovely aromatics with layers of red and black plum, mingling with cassis, smoky roast coffee bean, dried thyme and complex cedary spice nuances. The palate is soft yet concentrated, with wonderfully fine-grained tannins and integrated oak. While approachable in its youth, this wine will benefit and gain additional complexity from careful cellaring over the next 10-15 years.
Grilled and Roasted Red and White Meats, Casseroles, Stews and Mature Strong Cheeses, one to pair with rare cuts of roast beef.
