DUNBAR ESTATES Nelson Tasman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Flavours of fresh forest berries, dark fruits, blueberries with a hint of spearmint & a touch of oak. The palate is smooth and clean, opening with a rich, soft almost velvety sweet fruit, dark berries and a hint of chocolate. Good length, fine tannic structure, loads of fresh acid balance.

Alcohol:  13%


Winemaker: Patrick Stowe.


“This wine caught me by surprise. I haven’t tasted a cabernet sauvignon this ripe from any other cool climate wine region. With ripe, sweet, rich blackberries and black currant flavours and a rich palate weight the wine is incredibly attractive. The big fruit flavours are balanced beautifully with very fine, powdery tannins and a touch of fresh mint in the very long, juicy without a hint. An excellent wine.”

4 ½ stars – Neil Hodgson, Nelson Mail.
