More Information

A blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.

Awatea takes its name from the historic ship SS Awatea (a Maori word meaning “Eye of the Dawn”) that sailed the Auckland – Sydney – Wellington route in the late 1930s. The Awatea was requisitioned as a troop transport in WWII and was sunk off Algeria in 1942.

"Very deep, bold, bright purple/red colour leads into a superbly fragrant cabernet nose of violets, cassis, cedar and tobacco, while the palate is intense and bright, focused and elegant, with abundant fine tannins but also ready drinkabilty and superb balance. An excellent Awatea, with the structure to age and develop for many years. (48% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 15% cabernet franc)." 95pts - Huon Hooke - The Real Review

"Lovely tomato stalk aroma. Blackcurrant and cedar with a long, finely tannic length – very savoury and serious with lots of Bordelais styling. Plenty of firm structure and grip. Has the power and fruit purity to improve over the next decade or more." 17+/20pts - Richard Hemming MW - jancisrobinson.com

"Perfumed with violet, raspberry, blackcurrant, lead pencil, a smattering of dried herb and paprika. It’s medium-bodied, but dense and full of flavour, fine-boned, fresh and crisp, a purple juiciness through it, and a cool feel, along with fine tightly packed emery tannin. The length is both precise and long. Beautiful svelte Cabernet of grace and class." 94pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
