Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand,
An elegant, fruity wine with a savoury finish. The palate is fleshy but with great structure from the inclusion of whole clusters. On the nose, it is captivating with violets, dark berries and delicate spice. It is delicious served with roasted or slow-cooked game meats, as it has a beautiful earthiness with a generous fruit and subtle thyme character. The tannins are chalky and give great length and power.
