Tasting Notes

Colour: A beautiful deep purple/red, with a dense, dark core and bright, flashing purple rim.
Bouquet: The essence of Hawkes Bay Cabernet: masses of blackcurrant fruit, a touch of black doris plum, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak.
Palate: A beautifully structured wine. Full bodied with silken tannins, great length and penetration. The fruit in the mid palate lasts and lasts.

Description

This is only the third Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon that we have made since 1998, which shows just how protective we are of our ‘Reserve’ label. Cabernet Sauvignon is a tough variety to grow in New Zealand, but in the right conditions, it performs magnificently. Vintage 2016 provided the right conditions and we were able to harvest the Gimblett Gravels Cabernet block in magical condition on 21 April. This wine spent nine month in French oak and the final assemblage includes over 80% new oak. The wine received a light fining and filtration, and was bottled in 750ml and larger formats on 11th July 2017.
