Sacred Hill Hawke's Bay Merlot/Cabernet (2020)

Priced right, the 2020 vintage (3.5*) is a Merlot-based blend (97 per cent), with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and was 'aged briefly with French oak'. Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with generous red berry, plum and spice flavours, a hint of herbs, fresh acidity and a smooth finish. Best drinking 2022+.
