A great discount on this delicious Hawkes Bay Bordeaux blend. From a quality and boutique producer, this beautifully crafted blend enjoys the best of Merlot's mouthfilling fruit, with a depth of aroma and colour from Malbec and Cabernet Franc. The vintage of 2014 was legendary for this bright and perfectly ripe style, and at this price it is a serious drop. Grab this!

What The Critics Say

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"Estate-grown and hand-picked at Havelock North, the 2014 vintage (4.5*) is densely coloured and savoury, with a complex, leathery bouquet. A full-bodied, powerful red with concentrated blackcurrant and plum flavours, hints of nutty oak, and ripe, supple tannins, it should be at its best 2018+."

Winemaker notes on current 2014 vintage

"Aromas of cedar, vanillin oak lift and dark plum with a subtle savoury mineral complexity. The subtle tannins in the mid palate of this blend of Bordeaux varieties fill the mid palate with a balanced texture and density giving length and structure. Enjoy now or will cellar well."
