Clearview Estate Old Olive Block 2016 (Hawke’s Bay)
This is a fascinating wine, estate-grown at Te Awanga from vines grown near a 100-year-old olive tree (originally planted by the pioneering Vidal family). It is cabernet sauvignon-dominant, and leads with intriguing leafy notes. It grows through the palate, with ripe dark fruit flavours joining the party, and has a lengthy finish. The perfect wine for osso bucco.
