A brilliant wine that showcases the prowess of merlot in Hawkes Bay, the violet-like florals are entrancing and the array of blueberry and plum fruits on offer nicely framed in some earth and chocolate. The palate is seamlessly delivered as a sweeping mat of fine tannins. Flavours twist from berries to stony minerals as it closes. Drink now. Screw cap.
Is it possible for a wine to smell velvety? The combination of ripe black cherries and plums with vanilla and toast on the nose of the 2015 Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard has that effect. It's a plush, medium to full-bodied wine on the palate, the oak gently channeling the fruit into a steady flow and into a long, textured finish tinged with dried herbs. This year's blend is 76% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. 2017 - 2023.
This red has plenty of power, opening up fragrant and effusive, with white pepper, sage and toasted cumin accents to a core of rich, velvety and concentrated blackberry and blueberry notes. Syrah. Drink now through 2029.-M.W.
