Brookfields Ohiti Estate Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 $22

If you’re looking for a cabernet sauvignon showing a tweak of that funky, smoky, Old World French stylism about it, then you’re snuggling into the right sleeping bag, my friend. Bold, boho-like, plummy, and bursting with earthy, roasting-pan meatiness, it also boasts grainy tannins, leathery layers, and loads of classic cabernet characters. Personality and plumpness on the finish are sure to bring the grins. Peter Robertson is the legendary winemaker responsible for this gem, and he reckons classic minted lamb chops are the way to go.
