Clearview Estate Winery

Clearview Estate Winery 'The Basket Press' 2013
Bordeaux blend using 4 varieties
Bold, rich, meaty, distinctive, masculine, ripe and packed with aromas of ripe dark berry fruits and oak. Black berries, currants, sweet plums and crushed violets, touch of saltiness adds complexity and depth - overall very complex, very young. On the palate - juicy, oaky, fresh, very fruity, tense, youthful and poised for ageing; a delicious wine with multiple layers of flavour and texture; clove and coffee bean, toast and brown baking spice moments; highish acidity and tannins; velvet texture and long finish; a complex and exciting wine to taste, well made and proving that the Bordeaux red blend has an enormous future in New Zealand.97 Points
