2018 Smith & Sheth CRU ‘Cantera’, Hawke’s Bay
A deep, intense ruby red colour with complex dark red fruits predominant on the nose. A beautiful meld of spicy berry aromas with liquorice, sweet oak and vanilla in the background. The three varieties in this wine complement each other in both aroma and palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure, the Tempranillo, juiciness and flesh with the Cabernet Franc adding aromatic lift and freshness.
A unique Hawke’s Bay blend with the structure that will allow it to age for at least 10 years.
