Dancing Petrel - 2019 Tannat - 750ml - Mangonui, New Zealand
Bold, beautiful and breathtaking. A distinctive, richly tannic wine with highly concentrated cherries, vanilla and liquorice. Lingering deliciousness. Excellent now and a fine addition to your cellar.
From a variety that is well known in south-west France and Uruguay, this Northland red was hand-picked and matured in French oak casks (30% new). Powerful, with dark, bold, purple-flushed colour, it is densely packed, with plum, spice and liquorice flavours, fresh acidity, firm tannin backbone and a long future ahead. Open 2023+. Michael Cooper
