TROPHY - Hawke's Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards
GOLD MEDAL - Hawke's Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards
94 POINTS - Bob Campbell MW

Chris Harrison only produces cabernet franc in excellent vintages and that's paid off for him here because he's now got a trophy from the Hawke's Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards under his belt. The wine itself has a healthy dose of tannic grip and plenty of dark sweet fruit flavours but it's well-balanced and is a stunning example of Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Franc.

Rarely seen in NZ a single varietal Cab Franc, Layered but gentle tannic grip and plenty of dark sweet fruit flavours. Beautifully well-balanced and stunning example of what Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Franc can do!
