Te Mata Estate Awatea 2002

88 points

Hawkes Bay. 14% cab merlot cab franc

Not perhaps the best Awatea. The colour is a little transparent bricky red. The nose a bit too vegetal. This was considered a good vintage in Hawkes Bay though I’ve often suspected that it produced wines a little higher in alcohol and yet less ripe than desirable.
