Gillman Vineyard, Matakana - 2012

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

Appearance: Very dark garnet with long legs.

Nose: Big, quite ripe nose of black fruits and thyme, with a hint of Old-World barnyard character.

Palate: Starts with good concentrated fruit characters that evolve with characters of smoked meats and dried herbs. Still young tannins in the long, warm finish. A robust, full-bodied wine that will reward cellar ageing.

"The 2012 vintage (5 stars) is very elegant, with a cedary bouquet, deep, ripe blackcurrant, plum, spice and nut flavours, fine-grained tannins, and a lengthy, silky-smooth finish. These are classy wines, worth discovering."
