Sacred Hill Helmsman


This is a classy, single-vineyard Gimblett Gravels red from Hawke’s Bay. The highly refined 2017 vintage (5*), blended from Cabernet Sauvignon (55 per cent), Merlot (34 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (11 per cent), was hand-picked and matured for 16 months in French oak barriques (55 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is fragrant, with strong, youthful blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, revealing excellent complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2022+.
