Wine Of The Week NZ

Vidal-Legacy-Cab-Sav-2014Vidal Legacy Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $69.99

Very impressive Gimblett Gravels cabernet sauvignon, with textbook varietal flavours of cedar, cigar box and cassis plus a subtle hint of fresh herbs and a seasoning of very classy oak. This is a flagship wine that thoroughly justifies its exalted status. Should develop magnificently with bottle age. (Screwcap)
