Clearview Estate Old Olive Block Cabernets and Malbec 2016 Hawkes Bay
Bold and fruity bouquet with dark berries and black Doris plum fruit scents. New oak aromas with smoke, toasty wood and loads of clove and vanilla. Complex and enticing. Dry, rich in flavour and texture with dark plums and dark berries, brown spices, herbaceous and weighty, bold tannins and plenty of acidity. While this wine can be enjoyed immediately, it will also benefit from cellar time. Best drinking from 2020 through 2026.
