Newton’s Law Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay 2013

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 05-May-2016
Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red with purple on the rim. This has a firmly concentrated nose with good depth of ripe black-berried fruits entwined with blackcurrants, savoury iron-earth layers and nuances of spicy black plums and suggestions of black pepper. This has penetration and intensity, whilst retaining a degree of elegance and proportion. Medium-full bodied, the palate features concentrated and deep flavours of ripe black berried fruits alongside black plums, spices and pepper, melded harmoniously with black minerals and iron-earth flavours. This has a tight core with fine-grained, powdery tannins with significant extraction and structure that carry the wine to a long, elegant finish with reserved, but lingering flavours of black fruits and minerals. This is an elegantly concentrated, black-fruited Merlot blend with iron-earth and mineral length and fine-grained structure. Match with lamb, beef, venison and semi-hard cheeses over the next 7-8+ years. A blend of 51% Merlot, 23% Syrah, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Malbec, the fruit from the ‘Cornerstone’ vineyard, the wine aged 16 months in 15% new French oak. 18.0/20 May 2016 RRP $20.00
