Hawkes Ridge Hawke’s Bay Reserve Tempranillo 2016

Hawkes Ridge Hawke’s Bay Reserve Tempranillo 2016 $35

From the dusty, dry terraces left from the flow of the Ngaruroro River, comes this savoury, meaty, spicy wine.  Fleshy and fruit-forward, it’s a dry, prune and pepper-laced wine that tastes like it was made 10 years ago.  The alcohol is a hefty 14.5% which gives it heart and heft and warmth on the palate – it’s a smooth, velvety, maturing style that’ll appeal to anyone enjoying their leathery reds.
