2014 Brookfields Ohiti Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

According to its website, Brookfields Vineyard is Hawkes Bay's oldest boutique winery, situated alongside the glistening waters of the Tutaekuri River, between Napier and Hastings. The winery was purchased by the current owner and winemaker Peter Robertson, in 1977, who has since transformed Brookfields into a leading winery.

An intense red colour typical of a Cabernet Sauvignon, Brookfield’s 2014 Ohiti Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent expression of the region, packed full with ripe berry flavors and a smokey and leather undertone with plenty of spice. I love that it was both full-bodied and soft at the same time, with plenty of depth and texture. An excellent wine that will go with a variety of food.

Verdict: Plush and flavourful with gentle tannins and good acidity. This is one with character and a story to tell!
