Askerne Estate Merlot Cabernet Franc Malbec 2019
This complex blend showcases a great vintage on our Havelock North vineyard. Dark and brooding on the nose with black doris plum, aromatic jasmine and underlying mineral notes of graphite and tar. The palate is broad and soft with supple front palate tannins and soft vanilla oak enveloping the fruit. Drink now or cellar for 5-7 years.
