Vidal of Hawkes Bay ‘Legacy’ Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2013 Gimblett Gravels
Complex, youthful, varietal and masculine with distinctive aromas and flavours of blackberry and plum then black currant, English tea, stony soil/granite and plenty of oak. The acidity is bold and youthful, tannins ripe and grippy with a finish reminiscent of iron, graphite and tobacco. A wine still developing. Great textures and lengthy finish. Drink now if decanted. Best from 2019 through 2029.
