Stonecroft 'Ruhanui' Gimblett Gravels 2015 Hawke's Bay
Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon
Dark red and purple hues; juicy, fleshy and ripe bouquet of black plum and blackberry fruits, an obvious bite of oak with toasty wood notes, moderate+ complexity and intensity. On the palate - dry, fruity, masculine, spicy, toasty and lush; a mouth-filling example with plenty of weight and expression showing off both the plummy merlot fruits and muscle of cabernet; firm youthful tannins, medium+ tannins and decent lengthy finish.
