Takapoto Estate Crossing Point The Red 2020, Waikato

Blended Red from New Zealand - Waikato
Review Date : 11-Jul-2023
Full, dark purple, lighter on the rim. The nose is lush, with aromas of blackcurrant, dark plum, dark chocolate, minty herbs and cedar. Full-bodied, aromas of blackcurrant and plum are juicy, entwined with minty herbs, dark chocolate, fine spice and cedar. Fine-grained tannins provide a smooth grip, reflecting on spice and dark chocolate details. Lively acidity injects vibrancy and youthfulness. This Red Blend is lovely structured with lush fruit, spice and a fine tannin palate. Match with beef brisket and short ribs over the next 3-5 years. A blend of Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Cabernet Franc, fermented to 13.5% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) July 2023 RRP $32.99
