Brookfields ‘Ohiti Estate’ Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-Dec-2018
Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with purple hues on the rim. The nose is softly concentrated and packed with a rounded core of ripe dark redcurrant fruit harmoniously melded with blackcurrants and cassis aromas along with dark and fresh herbs that blossom with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is taut and well-bound with an elegant heart of fresh, fragrant redcurrant fruit entwined with blackcurrants, herbs and a little cassis. The palate is supported by light, grainy tannin extraction and the mouthfeel is enlivened by a line of fresh, bight acidity. The wine carries with sweetness and acid energy to a slender, lingering finish. This is an elegant, taut Cabernet Sauvignon with fresh and sweet redcurrant and blackcurrant flavours on a light, grainy palate with fresh acidity. Fruit from the ‘Ohiti Estate, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged in 1 and 2 y.o. French oak. 17.0+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $20.00
