Unison (Hawkes Bay) 2017 Rocky Red Blend
4 Stars - Michael Cooper
"Drinking well from 2020 onwards, the 2017 vintage (4*) is a blend of Merlot (89 per cent) and Cabernet Sauvignon (11 per cent), grown in the Gimblett Gravels and barrel-aged. Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, with fresh, generous, plummy, spicy flavours, showing considerable complexity, and a very harmonious, smooth finish." Michael Cooper
From Unison vineyards, Rocky Red is a serious blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is basket pressed and aged in fine French oak... over delivers on quality, and under delivers on price.
inviting aromas of dark cherry and plum underlying violet and chocolate notes. A touch of spice and warm leather. Lively flavours of bright red and black fruits and spice flow across the palate with fine tannins giving depth and length
