2019 Omahu Cantera

Hawke's Bay

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Cabernet Franc, inspired by the red wines of spain.

Very dense, almost opaque black cherry colour. Hedonistic aromas of blackcurrant, cigar box, vanilla, cedar and violets provide an overwhelming but composed impact on the nose. The palate is similarly generous with abundant flavours of blueberry, dark plum and blackcurrant alongside a creamy vanilla and warm pastry like texture, delicious fine pencil lead and toast, finishing with the distinctive iodine and stony texture of fine Gimblett Gravels red wine.

An earthy red with aromas of blackberry, chocolate, cedar and clay. It's full-bodied with velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Fleshy and balanced with a long, chewy finish. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and cabernet franc.
