Collaboration Impression Merlot/Cabernet/Cabernet Franc (2018)

The generous 2018 vintage (4.5*) is a Hawke's Bay blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, matured for 18 months in French oak barrels, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. An elegant, deeply coloured red, it is full-bodied and finely balanced, with good concentration of fresh blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, and nutty, savoury notes adding complexity. Drink now or cellar.
