Stonyridge ‘Larose’ Waiheke Island Cabernets 1998

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 22-Nov-2013
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour, this still has some vitality of fresh curranty fruit aromas and flavours, on the cooler side of ripeness, medium-bodied and quite elegant in size. There is secondary interest with earth and meat, along with cedary oak intermixed with leafiness. Some brettanomyces elements are noticeable too. The wine rests on its acidity now, the tannins melting away as the wine fades on the finish. 17.0/20 Nov 2013
