Tasting Notes

Block 5 lives up to its exalted reputation in what appears to have been an excellent Central Otago vintage. A fragrant, almost floral nose with a the scent of dark berries, violet and wildflowers. Concentrated flavours on the palate with a stronger fruit focus together with a savoury, spicy influence. Obviously youthful but still approachable although the wine appears to have hidden depths that will be revealed in time. A smooth, rich texture adds appeal while a lengthy finish indicates impressive power.
