If you think NZ only does Pinot Noir an Syrah, think again. This Cabernet has a rich blackcurrant nose, but the palate shows restraint and balance. A lovely coating of very fine tannins cover the mouth on the finish.
Winemakers Tasting Note:
This ‘Ohiti Estate’ Cabernet Sauvignon is an intensely dark vibrant wine which has a rich aroma, showcasing cassis, ripe blackcurrants, blackberries, dried herbs, subtle spicy oak and vanilla, with a hint of tobacco in the background. The palate is elegant, rich and flavoursome, and extends the heritage of our ‘Ohiti Estate’ which continually produces ripe Cabernet Sauvignon year after year.
Founded in 1937, Brookfields Vineyards is Hawke's 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 for New Zealand premium wines.
