Awaroa Waiheke Island Cabernet/ Malbec/Merlot (2019)

The powerful, youthful 2019 vintage (5*) is already drinking well. Estate-grown, hand-picked and matured in seasoned French oak barriques, it is fragrant, dark, full-bodied and supple, with concentrated, ripe berry, plum and spice flavours, finely integrated nutty oak, and excellent complexity, depth and harmony. Best drinking 2024+.
