de la terre Reserve Montepulciano 2016

Hawke's Bay | $57

The wine is a deep red/purple/black colour. The nose is dominated by dark fruits – black cherry, black olive and damson plum alongside cedar and vanilla oak notes.
The palate has a strong and rich attack of dark fruit which moves seamlessly through to a vibrant and mouth-watering mid=palate with real structure. There is a lovely balance between fruit, tannins and acidity with an attractive seam of spicy French Oak. Drinking nicely in its youth but with huge potential for ageing and development – with time in the bottle, the primary fruits will give way to further complexities such as tar, liquorice and leather. Cellar well and you won’t have to think about it going backwards for 15 or more years.
Hand-picked grapes from low-yielding vines on the smallest of our Hill Country Estate terraces. Our winemaking procedures aimed at highlighting the black fruit spectrum and rich tannin structure. The wine was aged for ~ 15 months in French oak (40% new) Un-fined and unfiltered, estate bottled and hand-labelled. A small production only – individually hand-numbered. de  la terre – Tasting Notes
