"Youthful, concentrated red with deep, bright colour and concentrated, well-ripened plum and spice flavours. Partly oak-matured style, fresh and vibrantly fruity, with some savoury notes and a rich, firm finish. "4 Stars - Michael Cooper, Michael Ivecivich & Phil Brodie, Winestate (01/Oct/2010
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright, deep crimson hues.
The wine displays a vibrant nose of red plum and berry fruits with subtle cedary undertones.
A full, textured palate with soft tannins makes this an excellent food wine .
Enjoy from release until 2015.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyard parcels in our Joseph Soler vineyard situated on the outskirts of the Gimblett Gravels winegrowing region in the Hawkes Bay. The vineyard has operated on organic principles since 2001, and Joseph Soler has 21 hectares now certified by BioGro New Zealand. Rather than relying on herbicides or pesticides, this vineyard has a focus on enhancing soil health to grow healthy and balanced wines.
