Passage Rock Reserve Waiheke Island Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot (2015)

The sturdy 2015 vintage (5*) was matured for a year in French oak barrels (30 per cent new). Highly fragrant and deeply coloured, it is built to last, with deep, fairly youthful blackcurrant, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent structure and complexity. Best drinking 2022+.
