“2012 was, for Puriri Hills at least, a good vintage and certainly better than 2011 despite that vintage’s challenging reputation. The 2012 Estate is a charming and approachable wine. It’s a little lighter and softer, but I still regard it as a serious red.” – Bob Campbell MW
Tasting Note: A favourable growing season produced a very open and generous expression of Estate, which is on the softer and gentler end of the Bordeaux-style spectrum, but with excellent structure. Oak influence is barely detectable here, suggesting good early development. Fragrant with plum and red fruits underpinned by some savoury nuances and fine-grained tannins. The finish is ample and warming, an ideal accompaniment for winter braises.
Varietal: Merlot/Cabernet blend
