Mission Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Cabernet Sauvignon (2019)

Still unfolding, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and matured for a year in French oak barrels (25 per cent new). Dark and fragrant, it is sturdy, with strong, vibrant blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with oak, and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2024+.
