Clearview Hawke’s Bay Enigma


Entirely estate-grown at Te Awanga, the lovely 2016 vintage (5*) is a deeply coloured blend of Merlot (70 per cent), Malbec (20 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (10 per cent), matured for 16 months in French oak casks (40 per cent new). Sturdy, rich and youthful, it has concentrated blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, savoury and complex, a hint of dark chocolate, fine-grained tannins, and obvious cellaring potential. Already drinking well, it’s a very ‘complete’ wine, likely to be at its best 2021+.
