De La Terre Grande Reserve Hawke's Bay Tannat (2016)

The classy 2016 vintage (5*) was grown and hand-picked at Havelock North and matured for 18 months in French oak casks (50 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, with fresh, concentrated, berryish, plummy, spicy flavours, a hint of liquorice, savoury notes adding complexity, finely balanced tannins, and a long finish. Best drinking 2021+.
