Unison ‘Selection’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay 2009

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 11-Jul-2012
Very full, deep, near saturated black-ruby colour. This is fulsome and solidly presented on the nose with very ripe black berry and plum fruit aromas with fruit-cake, brown spices, earth, cedar and toasty oak complexities that are revealed in waves. Full-bodied, this is a dense, rich and ripe wine with decadently sweet fruit and powerful and serious extraction. The balance of the lush fruit and firm, ripe tannins is superb and endows the wine with the potential to develop well. Layers of earth, cedar and spices flow, adding flavour detail. This has a great palate core that has plenty of dimension and drive. The flavours are carried through to a very long textured finish with rich, sweet fruit and exotic spice notes. This is a powerful and opulent red with the structure to develop over the next 15+ years. Serve with slow-cooked game meat. 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot from the best vineyard parcels. Aged a total of 18 months in barrique. 19.0/20 Jul 2012 RRP $60.00
