2019 Helmsman Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Blend

Fragrant and powerful, this wine is not shy!

Purple flowers mingle with sweet, exotic spice, crushed bay leaf and ripe blueberries. A hint of toasted,smoked nuts adds intrigue to the aromatics.

Generous and approachable on the palate with an intensity of ripe blueberries and blackcurrants, highlighted with sweet spice and a whiff of aromatic smoke. Concentrated and mouth filling with a freshness that give the wine an exquisite balance. Flavours and textures linger with elegance on the palate. An uplifting wine.

Medium deep crimson.  Lovely intense mulberry, strawberry jam, cassis aromas accompanied with integrated dukkah, roasted chestnut oak.  Inky and supple with gorgeous mulberry, cassis, strawberry fruits, fine plentiful chalky, slightly al dente tannins and superb oak complexity.  Finishes chalky firm, even slightly assertive, with inky, cassis notes. A lovely combination between richness and vigour.
