Saint Clair Pioneer Block 17 Plateau Cabernet Merlot 2021, Hawke’s Bay

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Mar-2024
Deep, ruby-red with a dark purple hue, even colour throughout. The nose is rich and enticing, with aromas of blackcurrant and plum intermixed with cedar, chocolate and an amalgam of spice. Full-bodied, aromas of blackcurrant, plum and cedar entwined with dark chocolate, clove and nutmeg. The fruit is bright with excellent freshness, enriched by a rich, earthy quality. Fine-grained, smooth tannins structure an opulent mouthfeel and provide vitality. This Cabernet Merlot is well-structured and rich, built on excellent fruit and freshness, lending a long, engaging finish. Fruit from Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 13.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2024 RRP $42
