Delegat's Hawke's Bay Cabernet Merlot

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The bargain-priced 2008 vintage is dark and youthful in colour, with generous blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours. Fruity and supple, with a gentle seasoning of oak, it shows very good ripeness, balance and depth.

The richly coloured 2003 vintage is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Still youthful, it offers plenty of vibrant, blackcurrant and plum flavour, gently oaked and smooth.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage, tasted prior to bottling (and so not rated), is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, matured in seasoned oak barrels. Full-coloured, with a slightly herbaceous bouquet, it possesses fresh blackcurrant and plum flavours and a smooth, slightly high-acid finish.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
Delegat's lower-tier red is typically a pleasant but straightforward wine with fresh fruit flavours. The 1997 is a solid quaffer, but lacks any real flavour delights. However, the 1998 vintage matured for six months in French oak casks, is the best yet - full in colour, with fresh, ripe blackcurrant/plum fruit characters, warm and flavoursome.
