The 2021 Haura offers light brambly red fruit on the nose and just a touch of damp undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with rough tannins on the entry, and rather angular in style, leading to an edgy, slightly green finish.

This has polish, well-finessed fruits, savoury, leafy character that is signature to the Cabernet Sauvgnon grape in a cooler vintage. Classical, sculpted and juicy. One of the value wines to look out for. Jean-Jacques Dubourdieu winemaker here, 33% new oak, gravel dominant soils.

Gorgeous pink floral notes on the nose. Crisp on the palate with nicely textured fine tannins. The cool blue fruit has real bite and juiciness giving energy but this also has quite a robust frame with some toasted wood elements coming through and Cabernet spice on show. Well constructed and good potential over ageing. Nice quality from winemaker Jean-Jacques Dubourdieu.
