Kingsley Estate Cabernet Merlot

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The 2000 vintage was grown organically in Gimblett Road, Hawke's Bay, and matured for 20 months in French oak barriques (one-third new). A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (67 per cent), Merlot (30 per cent) and Malbec (3 per cent), it was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration. It makes no concessions to drink-young appeal. Dark, with a spicy, leathery, oaky bouquet, it's a complex style with firm tannins bracing its strong, well-ripened, blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours. A serious wine, it's built for cellaring; open 2004+.
