Te Awanga Estate The One Off Silky Smooth Organic Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Hawkes’s Bay

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Aug-2020
Deep, ruby-red with lightness, youthful, even throughout. The nose is softly exuberant, nuances of red berries, cassis, blackberries, violet, entwined with an amalgam of spices, cedar and earth. Medium-bodied, aromas of red berries, blackberries, cassis, along with violet, earth, cedar note, lingers with spices to a sustained finish. The acidity is vibrant, flows with great energy and liveliness. Ripe and silky tannin, supportive in structure, supple on the mouthfeel, balanced with the bright and lush fruit with moderate complexity of earth and cedar element. Match with beef carpaccio with shaved black truffle and Osso Buco over the next 3-4 years. The final blend of 84% Sangiovese, 16% Cabernet. Sangiovese aged in 2500L French barrel and Cabernet aged in French oak barriques separately then blended after 15 months. 18.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $35.99
