Newton Forrest Estate Cornerstone


Grown in the Cornerstone Vineyard, on the corner of Gimblett Road and State Highway 50 – where the first vines were planted in 1989 – this is a distinguished Hawke’s Bay blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec, matured in French (principally) and American oak barriques. Still on sale, the highly refined 2015 vintage (5*) is dark, full-bodied and tightly structured, with concentrated, ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, complex and savoury, fine-grained tannins, and a very harmonious finish. Already delicious, it’s well worth cellaring.
