DUNLEAVY ‘THE STRIP’ CABERNET/MERLOT 2017

$45.00

Bordering the old Waiheke Air Strip this vineyard produces world-class Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot.

Planted when their children were barely walking, John and Paul Dunleavy’s vines have matured over two decades and, like their children, bring their own unique character to this wine.

Aged in barrels for 10 months, but made in a forward, fruit driven style to be enjoyed in youth, The Strip will continue to improve over time with careful cellaring.

Tasting Notes:

A medium ruby red colour with a brilliant elegance leads to a pronounced nose of ripe black currant and black cherry accompanied by subtle oak toast and soft raspberry chocolate.  The palate bursts with juicy blackberry, raspberry and black Doris plum, all held together with a textural tannin structure and fresh balanced acidity.  The mouthfeel is generous, fruit forward and vibrant with a lingering fruit length that entices you to the next sip.
