Dancing Petrel Paewhenua Island Mangonui Northland Tannat (2019)

Well worth discovering, the powerful, densely packed 2019 vintage (5*) is set for a long life. Hand-picked and matured in French oak casks (30 per cent new), it has bold, dark, purple-flushed colour, loads of plummy, spicy flavour, a hint of liquorice, firm tannin backbone, and obvious potential. Best drinking 2023+.
