From Auckland-based Tamra Kelly (formerly chief winemaker at Yealands Estate), the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was barrel-aged for 10 months. A medium to full-bodied red, it is deeply coloured, with concentrated, vibrant flavours of berries, plums and spices, showing good complexity, and obvious cellaring potential.
