Thomas Waiheke Island Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 05-Jul-2017
Full, even, black-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on edge. The nose is tightly bound and elegantly concentrated with penetrating and pure aromas of blackcurrants and cassis liqueur, along with dark herbs and suggestions of blackcurrant leaf. This has intensity and depth, the core unveiling some pencilly oak notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright, vibrant, rich and juicy blackcurrant fruit flavours with cassis and dark herbs forming a concentrated core. The mouthfeel is lively and fresh, with crisp acidity supporting the fine-grained tannin extraction and structure, The fruit sweetness on the palate has linearity, and carries with plenty of vitality to a long and sustained finish of blackcurrants and cassis. This is a rich, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon with concentration and clarity of blackcurrant and cassis fruit on a fine-grained palate with a lingering finish. Serve with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes, and semi-hard cheeses over the next 7-10 years. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Onetangi, hand-picked and fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine aged 15 months in 43% new French oak. 1,549 bottles made. 18.5/20 Jul 2017 RRP $56.00
