Pask Small Batch Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Cabernet Franc (2019)

Drinking well in its youth, the 2019 vintage (4*) was estate-grown and matured for 14 months in French oak barrels (20 per cent new). Fullish in colour, with a slightly herbal bouquet, it is mouthfilling and supple, with fresh, generous berry, plum, spice and herb flavours, savoury and nutty notes adding complexity, and a smooth finish.
