Ngakirikiri Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  10791

Ngakirikiri means 'the gravels'. This is a new flagship label that in my view justifies its exalted price tag. It's quite an extraordinary wine with dense berry, savoury, earth and spicy oak flavours. Long and linear, it has power and structure but the tannins are surprisingly soft and pliable. The wine really opened up as it sat in the glass revealing interesting coffee, malt, peat and toasty characters together with a suggestion of violet. Definitely worth decanting. Collectable and age worthy red. Drink Date: 2015 to 2028. Score - 98. (Bob Campbell, MW,, Aug. 15, 2015)
