Puriri Hills Pope 2005

Blend: 47% Merlot, 33% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Franc & 10% Malbec

To compare the quality of this wine we have to look towards the great wines of St Emilion and Pomerol. Dark ruby red in colour. Compact and haunting aromas of super quality dark Swiss chocolate, Christmas cake, bran and dark fruits – very deep set aromas. The palate displays pristine and deep fresh blackberry and black plum underpinned by almost invisible coating tannins. It is slightly more backward, and slightly darker than the reserve. Again the palate shows an extra touch of weight but never is the wine forced or over extracted. The fruit is allowed to speak here, the structure is very finely boned, elegant, gentle fresh (perfect ripeness) and long.

Puriri Hills Red Blend 2004

BLEND: 67% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon, 11% cabernet franc, 4% malbec & 3% Carmen

An amazingly complex nose with red currants, and fruit cake undertones. Palate is yet again another step up from earlier vintages. Extremely stylish, nice level of fruit density which adds perhaps something missing from older vintages. Super complexity, drinking well now. It really delivers and competes.

Puriri Hills Red Blend Reserve 2004

Blend: 46% Carmenere , 36% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, & 7% Malbec

Compare the Reserve to some of New Zealand’s greatest ever Bordeaux style reds and the Reserve has reached yet another level of astonishing quality. Very dark ruby in the glass. The nose is quite restrained but does give up the sought after red currant and fruitcake notes. The palate is sensational with added power on the palate and super complexity. Blackberry and red currant palate, with underlying layers of mint at just the faintest volume, gives this jaw dropping quality. The texture is all velvet and the structure so finely boned and controlled. This wine is sensual and intellectual, extremely refined and graceful.

Puriri Hills Reserve Red Blend 2005

Blend:
40% Merlot, 21% Carmenere, 17% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon & 12% Malbec

Very dark ruby in the glass. The nose is quite restrained but does give up the sought after red currant and fruitcake notes. The palate is sensational with added power on the palate and super complexity. Blackberry and red currant palate, with underlying layers of mint at just the faintest volume, gives this jaw dropping quality. The texture is all velvet and the structure so finely boned and controlled. This wine is sensual and intellectual, extremely refined and graceful. This wine will cellar for a decade or more but is so interesting now, it will be hard to resist.

Te Awa Boundary Red Blend 2002

Blend: 65% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec

Lifted dark red berry fruit, with mineral, leather and savoury notes. A firm flavoursome attack, leads to a refined and elegant mid palate. The wine is well structured with a great length of flavour on the finish.

Boundary 2002 can be enjoyed now with food and will reward careful cellaring by developing extra complexity in its flavours and generosity on the palate.
