The Cable Bay team have sourced some really nice fruit from Marlborough to produce this wine. With aromas of cranberry, red cherry, plum and rose; a mild core of savoury dried herb and spice and light to moderate oak. The bouquet has a fresh and youthful appeal. On the palate the wine is as expected - varietal and dry with a youthful grip of tannins and acidity contrasted with flavours of red berry fruits, some baking spice, dried herb and stony minerality. Overall a nice wine, perhaps best with food while bottle development continues. Best drinking without food from late 2020 through 2024.
