This full bodied complex Gimblett Gravels wine is widely regarded as being amongst the finest of New Zealand’s red wines, with a pedigree stretching back to 1989. Very deeply coloured it showcases the black fruit nature of Gimblett Gravels wines. Blackberry and dark cherry are complemented with aromas and flavours of tobacco and cedar. This is a powerful and ageworthy wine with excellent cellaring potential.

"Made with Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon from the Ngakirikiri and Cornerstone vineyards the bouquet and palate of this wine are impressive with aromas and flavours of blackberry and tobacco, roasted plums and violets, toasty spices of oak and smoky stony earthy complexities. Ripe, firm tannins and medium+ acidity bring texture and structure while the baking spices of barrel and baked stone flavours of earth layer on complexity and depth. A delicious wine ready to drink from purchase and through 2028+" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, Jul 2021
