The Prison Block gets its name from a three-quarter-hectare section in our “Gimblett Stones” vineyard behind Roys Hill originally earmarked for the Hawke’s Bay Regional Correctional Facility. The Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon vines now planted there produce tiny berries with intense colour, concentrated/complex flavours, ripe tannins and balanced acidity; all the hallmarks necessary to produce a wine worthy of a single vineyard release.

A youthful, dark purple/magenta colour paves way to intense aromas of ripe blackberries and blackcurrants, complemented by a beautiful floral perfume and hints of fresh cedar, vanilla and toast.

The wine is rich and concentrated in the mouth yet retains the elegance, structure and restraint so characteristic of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Pure black fruit flavours, savoury oak, fine-grained tannins and succulent acidity combine to produce an exquisitely balanced, seamless, textural palate with an exceptionally long finish.

Alc: 14%
