De La Terre Cloud Series Hawke's Bay Tempranillo (2018)

The youthful 2018 vintage (4.5*) was grown at Havelock North and matured for eight months in seasoned French oak casks. Full-coloured, with a fragrant, slightly earthy bouquet, it is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with ripe, brambly flavours, fresh acidity, and refined tannins. Best drinking 2022+.
