The dark, very powerful 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Redstone Vineyard, in the Bridge Pa Triangle, Hawke's Bay, and matured in French oak barriques (55 per cent new). Highly concentrated, it has an array of flavours – blackcurrant, plum, herbs, spices and liquorice – and the structure to be very long-lived. Still very youthful, it is a bold, dense, savoury red, likely to be at its best 2026+.
