Stonecroft Ruhanui Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon (2020)

Offering great value, the elegant 2020 vintage (5*) is a 50/50 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, estate-grown in the Roys Hill Vineyard and matured for 18 months in seasoned French oak barrels. Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling, fresh and vibrantly fruity, with concentrated, ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, supple tannins and a lingering finish. Still youthful, it's well worth cellaring to 2024+. Certified organic.
