Spade Oak

Spade Oak Vineyard “Heart of Gold’ St Laurent  2011, Gisborne 13%
N: Pinot-like at first followed -  hints of masculine darker fruits begin to emerge. Plenty of oak to add structural elements to the bouquet. (I noted a slight raisin ferment aroma)

P: Juicy and fruity with flavours of dark cherry, cola, blueberry and oak. Overall, medium/medium+ tannins, medium acid – a balanced, easy drinking dry red wine.
3 Stars
