Maison Noire Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Feb-2017
Even ruby-red colour with some depth nd light purple hues on the rim. This has a light, tightly bound nose with aromas of fresh blackcurrants and fresh herbs along with herbaceous leaf and stalky elements. The fruit is in the cooler spectrum. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly proportioned with good intensity of fresh, lively blackcurrant fruit flavours entwined with notes of fresh herbs, and subtle leafy and stalk detail. The fruit is balanced by modestly extracted, fine-grained tannin structure and light, fresh acidity, lending energy and tension. The wine leads to a light, brisk finish of blackcurrant leaves. This is an elegant, cooler spectrum Cabernet Sauvignon with fresh blackcurrant, herb and leafy notes on a light, but firm-structured palate. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 13.52% alc., the wine spending 30 days on skins post ferment and aged 16 months in 30% new French oak. 16.0+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $25.00
