Arahura Red Blend

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
The star wine from (retired judge) Ken and Diane Mason's two-hectare Arahura Vineyard at Clevedon, in South Auckland. Only 75 cases were made of the very generous 1997 vintage . A blend of Cabernet Franc (45 per cent), Malbec (3.3 per cent) and Cabernet Sauvignon (22 per cent), it possesses dense, bright colour and a fragrant, spicy bouquet, with the cigar box aromas of new French oak. A deliciously plump and concentrated wine, with rich blackcurrant and plum-like flavours and the warm, earthy character that sets Auckland reds apart, it's already approachable, but should peak around 2002.
