Saint Clair Premium Hawke's Bay Cabernet/Merlot (2019)

Priced right, the 2019 vintage (3.5*) is drinking well now. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (73 per cent) and Merlot (27 per cent), it was partly oak-aged. Deeply coloured, with a fresh, slightly herbal bouquet, it is a 'fruit-driven' style, with generous, ripe blackcurrant, plum and red berry flavours, a touch of complexity, supple tannins and a smooth finish.
