Mudbrick-Velvet-2015Mudbrick Vineyard Velvet 2015, Waiheke Island, NZD $140

A cabernet sauvignon-dominant blend, with merlot (30%) and malbec (5%). Mudbrick’s intense, flavoursome flagship red is a power-packed mix of dark berry fruits, subtle herb, vanilla, liquorice and a generous influence of spicy oak flavours. Generously proportioned red with obvious cellaring potential. (Cork)
