Hans Herzog Estate Zweigelt, Marlborough, New Zealand
The wonderful dark purple colour of this wine is a tastebud sensation! Sweet and savoury like a ?Black Forest Gateau? in a bottle! Wonderful aromas of dark chocolate, juicy ripe plums, sweet Damson plums and prunes with spicy undertones. There is a hint of black pepper, tobacco, Mediterranean herbs and liquorice. A flavour powerhouse and a highly complex wine with a great lively acidity, structure, soft tannins and a lingering finish. This is a wine built to last?.
