Description

Originally planted in 1993, the 10ha of vineyards in Onetangi are all on steep slopes ranging from 10 degrees to 35 degrees. Enjoying the stunning micro-climate of Waiheke they create generous and sophisticated reds. Named for Mayor Island discovered by Captain James Cook in 1769, this is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec. It is drinking superbly but will be a delight with further time in the cellar.

Smells

Beautiful floral notes give a vibrant lift to the cassis, black berry and anise.

Tastes

With hallmark sophistication you see in the wines of Obsidian, the layers of cassis, black berry, liquorice, dark chocolate and fine spicy oak. A juicy red with a supple mouthfeel and plenty of structure, it is a wine to enjoy now through 2025+.
