newton-forrest-newtons-law-20142014 Newton Forrest ‘Newton’s Law’, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $20

A blend of merlot, syrah, cabernet sauvignon and malbec all grown on the Gimblett Gravels. Dense and reasonably firmly structured red with a core of sweetness balanced by fine tannins to give a drying finish. Moderately accessible now but should develop with bottle age. Great value at this price. (Screwcap)
