Puriri Hills Pope 2005

In stock

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.

This is benchmark red wine of the absolute highest quality. This wine will deliver at its price tag. This wine, if cellared, will age gracefully for more than a decade. Perhaps let it sleep for a year, but after that it will also be hard to resist young. Special occasion ‘claret’. Immaculate.
