The classy 2019 vintage (5*) is a rare red (871 bottles), grown in Hawke's Bay, matured in French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling, with rich blackcurrant, red berry and spice flavours, showing excellent ripeness and concentration, savoury notes adding complexity, supple tannins and a finely structured, lasting finish. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2024+.
