The Hunting Lodge, Expressions Lavish Hawke's Bay Merlot/Malbec (2020)

The youthful 2020 vintage (3.5*) was grown in 'The Gravels' and matured for nine months in French and American oak barriques (20 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, with fresh, vibrant, moderately rich berry, plum and spice flavours, a slightly earthy streak, and a fairly firm finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
