Vintage 2013 will long be remembered in Hawkes Bay. The growing conditions were close to perfect and we were able to harvest the block at exactly the right time.
“It is elegantly restrained on the nose yet the wine offers full richness on the palate, displaying dark fruit, roasted meat and mixed spice characters with a touch of floral lift. The palate offers bags of tasty flavours, brilliantly structured by fine, firm tannins.” Wine Orbit
“Dark, youthful, fragrant red with sweet, ‘coconut’ aromas and very good depth of vibrant plum/spice flavours.” Winestate.
