Larose

Larose 2020 Waiheke Island, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec
The Spring/early Summer was warm and settled after flowering, and drought conditions started early. As a result of the incredibly dry summer, the berry size remained small. Sunny, settled and endless Bluebird days were the hallmarks of the 2020 vintage. Fruit condition was perfect, and we able to harvest fruit at the optimal time for each and every parcel. Tonnages were low, mainly due to tiny berry size, but the crop was even and open, ensuring great exposure to the sun.
The resultant wine is rich, concentrated, and deep, with fresh, pretty aromatics of lavender and powerful aromas of dark black fruits underpinning. On the palate, it is a wine of power and extraction, with massive chewy tannin at this point in its evolution. This is classic, great vintage Bordeaux, but in the more modern and clean style, with great purity and complexity of flavour. Drink from 2025-2050 if you can resist the temptation.
