Chateau Garage Cornerstone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Jul-2022
Deep, full ruby-red, lighter on the rim. This has an alluring, rich bouquet, greeted with cedar, spice, fragrant new oak, overlying cassis, plums, mint and pencil shavings. Full-bodied, succulent, pure aromas of cassis, plums intertwined with mint, tar, cedar, clove and nutmeg. The flavours of fruit are pure with excellent depth; integrated acidity lengthens the palate with mint and spice elements. Quality, fine-grained, chocolaty tannin provides a structured, velvety mouthfeel. The wine shows impressive structure and concentration and is built to last. Match with tomahawk and braised short ribs over the next 10+ years. Handpicked, destemmed, fermented wild in an open top fermenter for 5 days, then inoculated thereafter, fermentation finished in 14 days, aged 12 months in barrels, 33% new oak. 120 cases produced. 19/20 (pts) (95 pts) July 2022 RRP $70
