2018 CRU Omahu Cantera Magnum (1.5L)

$ 190.00 NZD

A deep, intense ruby red colour with complex dark red fruits predominant on the nose. A beautiful meld of spicy berry aromas with liquorice, sweet oak and vanilla in the background. The three varieties in this wine complement each other in both aroma and palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure, the Tempranillo, juiciness and flesh with the Cabernet Franc adding aromatic lift and freshness.

A unique Hawke's Bay blend with the structure that will allow it to age for at least 10 years.

Presented in a Smith & Sheth wooden gift box.

2020 CRU Omahu Cantera Magnum (1.5L)

$ 190.00 NZD

Dense almost opaque black cherry colour. A complex hedonistic nose of warm stones, black orchard fruit, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, vanilla and cedar. The palate is rich, dense and
generous without being sweet or overt, with the flavours reflecting the nose alongside a distinctive fine gravelly texture and twist of steel. Incredible cellaring potential although will always be delicious.

2022 Heretaunga Albariño*

$ 40.00 NZD

Vibrant, flavoursome Albariño from the Fratelli  Vineyard in Bridge Pa, hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, barrique fermented, aged on lees.

Straw coloured with refreshing lime citrus peel, ripe peach, and mandarin characters. Flavours of honeysuckle and stonefruit mingle with a subtle saltiness that provides a
savoury taste to the wine. Rich and full bodied yet fresh with mouthwatering crisp salivating acidity giving great balance, length and structure.

~ 91 Points ~ It is a joy of a mouthful, all florals, ripe peaches and juicy apples. It's been well treated, too, having been handpicked, whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented and aged on lees. These methods add to the variety's rounded shape, curved edges and suave texture. Albariño's classically tangy finish is in plain sight, refreshing the palate and bringing a salty, citrus finale.
