Collaboration Ceresia Hawke's Bay Cabernet Franc (2019)

The debut 2019 vintage (5*) is rare – 852 bottles were made. Barrel-aged, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it is full-coloured, fragrant, mouthfilling and supple, with generous blackcurrant, plum, red berry and spice flavours, finely integrated oak, and a real sense of vigour, delicacy, complexity and harmony. 'Sexy and serious', I jotted down.
