95 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real Review "An excellent Awatea"

Dark and bright, Awatea Cabernets/Merlot '18 is an inky purple with an electric crimson edge. AROMA From a warm and dry vintage, Awatea '18 shows ripe blackberry and blackcurrant aromatics with elements of vanilla creme and sandalwood. PALATE On the palate there's a banquet of plum, raspberry, dried herbs and lingering dark cherry, set out across cedar and cocoa powder tannins. Classical in structure, with fine balance and length, Awatea Cabernets/Merlot '18 is resplendent in its purity and detail.

The Real Review

Very deep, bold, bright purple/red colour leads into a superbly fragrant cabernet nose of violets, cassis, cedar and tobacco, while the palate is intense and bright, focused and elegant, with abundant fine tannins but also ready drinkabilty and superb balance. An excellent Awatea, with the structure to age and develop for many years. (48% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 15% cabernet franc).

Wine Orbit

The perfumed bouquet shows dark and purple fruit characters with warm spice, olive, cedar and floral notes. It’s splendidly concentrated and beautifully layered on the palate, delivering excellent fruit power combined with depth and complexity, finishing persistent and engaging.At its best: 2022 to 2030.
