Set for a long life, the classy 2018 vintage (5*) is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65 per cent), Merlot (20 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (15 per cent), estate-grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle, Hawke's Bay, and matured for two years in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is a powerful, sturdy red, with a rich surge of ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, seasoned with nutty oak, impressive complexity, fine tannins and a long, very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2024+.
