Coopers Creek ‘Select Vineyards – Gimblett Gravels’ Hawke’s Bay Cabernet/Merlot 2015 Coopers Creek ‘Select Vineyards – Gimblett Gravels’ Hawke’s Bay Cabernet/Merlot 2015

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Oct-2017
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with black-purple hues, a little lighter on the rim and youthful in appearance. The nose is full and gently voluminous with oft aromas of ripe blackcurrants and cassis melded harmoniously with dark-red plum notes, unfolding dark herb detail and some iron-earth nuances. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweet and rich fruit flavours of blackcurrants and cassis, intermixed with dark plums forming a rounded heart, unveiling nuances of dark herbs andiron-earth adding complexity. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and the mouthfeel has a smooth-flowing, textured line leading to a soft, lingering finish of black fruits and herbs. This is a sweet, rich-fruited Cabernet/Merlot blend with blackcurrant, plum and cassis flavours with herb and earth interest on a finely extracted palate. Match with roast lamb or beef over the next 5-7 years. A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot from the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 13.5% alc. the Cabernet aged 15 months and the Merlot aged 14 months in barrel, with 3% new oak. 18.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $28.00
