2019 Clearview Old Olive Block Cabernet Blend

Hawke's Bay

Te Awanga fruit blended with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon from the Gimlett Road area produces a classic full bodies wine. Cabernet's cassis flavours drive this dense and opulent wine. Natural acidity along with tannins and fruit allow this wine to age beyond a decade. Food match with beef pappardelle or enjoy a fireside winter glass.

Winemaker's notes

A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, predominantly from the Gimblett Gravels combined with 7% Merlot and 7% Malbec from our Te Awanga vineyards. Whole berries from each block were fermented separately with daily hand plunging and controlled use of filtered air. A period of post ferment maceration was followed by pressing and elevage in new and old oak for around 14 months before assemblage to the final blend.
