Reserve Hawkes Bay Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
GOLD MEDAL - ROYAL EASTER SHOW WINE AWARDS 2016 Crafted from hand picked fruit on our Gimblett Gravels block on Omahu Road.
This is the first Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon that we have made since 1998, which indicates just how protective we are of our ‘Reserve’ label. Cabernet Sauvignon is a tough variety to grow in New Zealand, but in the right conditions, it performs magnificently. Vintage 2013 provided the right conditions and we were able to harvest our Gimblett Gravels Cabernet block in magical condition. This wine spent one year in French oak and the final assemblage includes one third new oak. The wine received a light fining and filtration, and was bottled on 1 October 2014.
A beautiful deep purple/red, with a dense, dark core and bright, flashing purple rim.
The essence of Hawkes Bay Cabernet: masses of blackcurrant fruit, a touch of black doris plum, some meatiness and lovely, savoury oak.
A beautifully structured wine. Full bodied with silken tannins, great length and penetration. The fruit in the mid palate lasts and lasts.
This wine will drink beautifully from release and then cellar out to over five years in the correct environment.
Independent Reviewer’s Comment
"The outstanding 2013 vintage has bold, dense colour. A powerful red, it is firmly structured, with concentrated blackcurrant, plum and flavours, showing beautiful ripeness and richness." Michael Cooper 2016
