The elegant, youthful 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown in the upper Awatere Valley and matured for over a year in French oak barriques (41 per cent new). Deep, bright ruby, it is a medium to full-bodied, strongly varietal red, with generous, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing impressive ripeness and complexity, and fine, supple tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
