Spade Oak Heart of Gold St Laurent 2017, Gisborne

St Laurent from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 01-Sep-2020
Deep, ruby-black with some transparency, faintly lighter on the rim. The nose is bright and softly-full, aromas of blackberries, cherries, underlying gamey notes and subtle spices. Medium-light bodied, flavours of wild berries, cherries are light and fresh, entwined with subtle peppery spice and a brisk gamey note. The mouthfeel is light and fresh, enlivened by medium tannin, coating the palate with smooth, ripe tannin extraction. The fruit is ripe with good intensity, lingers with peppery spice to a sustained finish. This is a straight forward red made from St Laurant with flavours of wild berries, black pepper on a ripe tannin extract. Match with venison stir-fried and beef carpaccio over the next 2-3 years. 17.5/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $25
