Puriri Hills Reserve Red Blend 2005

In stock

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.

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.
