17.5 points, Jancis Robinson: "Mid healthy garnet. Relatively complex savoury burgundian(?) nose. Sweet palate entry but not sickly. Really satisfying – fresh and fruity but with depths that suggest it will age quite well. Lovely balance. Côte de Beaune not Côte de Nuits (sorry for these French similes).
*Prices in bond* Cape Crest and its gannet symbol refer to Cape Kidnappers, the southern point of Hawke Bay - home to the world’s largest colony of these marine birds. A Graves-style blend with great ageing potential.
