A medium bodied wine with well-developed flavours of cassis and walnut with an earthy complexity. This well-cellared wine shows a flavour development and smoothness that makes it delicious drinking at BBQ’s or with pizza.
This complex blend showcases a great vintage on our Havelock North vineyard. Dark and brooding on the nose with black doris plum, aromatic jasmine and underlying mineral notes of graphite and tar. The palate is broad and soft with supple front palate tannins and soft vanilla oak enveloping the fruit.
Dark and brooding with fruit aromas of cassis and black plum. Complex notes of vanilla, cinnamon spice and sandalwood add interest to the nose. The palate is full and rich but with an underlying sinew of acid and tannin. The generosity on the nose flows through the palate and adds length to the finish. This is wine for long term cellaring but can be enjoyed immediately if decantered. Drink over the next 7-10 years
Powerful aromatics equally proportioned between ripe fruit and complexity from fermentation and barrel aging. The fruit notes are in the viognier spectrum of apricot and peach whilst the complexity is largely a result of barrel fermentation and aging. There are nuances of grilled almonds as well as the mealy note of freshly milled grains. The palate is broad, rich and well structured. This wine also contains a line of mineral character that is present on the nose as a suggestion of the aroma of wet gravel and moves through the palate manifesting itself on the finish as a chalkiness of texture.
Pristine fruit was hand harvested off our estate vineyard and barrel fermented to produce a rich and complex Chardonnay. Notes of vanilla, toast and mixed spice complement the stone fruit and citrus notes of Hawke's Bay Chardonnay. ageing potential 3-5 years. The wine will compliment fish, chicken and pork dishes.
