Wine Of The Week
Sacred Hill 2013 Helmsman, Hawke’s Bay $75
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from a top vintage. Dense, bright and very concentrated red with dark berry, blackberry, cedar, violet, wood smoke, liquorice and spicy oak flavours. Obviously youthful red that promises to develop well. A true blockbuster, yet curiously elegant wine. (Screwcap) Score: 97 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
