The 2018 vintage (4.5*) is a top buy. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, it was grown in the Gimblett Gravels, Hawke's Bay, and barrel-matured for 18 months. Dark and purple-flushed, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with fresh blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with oak, and excellent ripeness and density. Best drinking 2024+.
