$36.99 per Bottle
$221.94 per package

“Blends of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are one of the most challenging and exciting wine styles to produce. There is a synergy between these two varieties that produces arguably one of the most complete, complex, fragrant and satisfying styles of red wine in the world.

Hawkes Bay, along with parts of the California’s Napa Valley was identified by the UK’s Decanter magazine as one of the only New World wine regions that could challenge Bordeaux in the production of such wines. A view supported by recent tastings, most notably in San Francisco, where Hawkes Bay Reds from the Gimblett Gravels were scored ahead of their Bordeaux counterparts.”

Our red wine vineyards are situated in the Bridge Pa Triangle and Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing districts in Hawkes Bay. The warm meso-climates and light stony soils give low crops of concentrated, fully ripe and fragrant fruit that produces classically structured wines with power, elegance, fragrance and finesse.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma and Palate

The wine shows depth and density of rich fruit and earthy complexity, but also exhibits a lighter more lifted fragrance. It demonstrates power on the palate, yet is never heavy or cloying, and it finishes long and dry, but not aggressive. A complex array of dense plum and berry fruits with subtle cool fragrant spice, sandalwood, cedar, dried lavender and violet like floral aromas are complimented by savoury, earthy and dark chocolate undertones derived from barrel maturation and an approach to winemaking that emphasises

complexity over simple fruit. On the palate the wine is rich and powerful, with a backbone of fine ripe tannins bringing linearity and structure. A serious, multidimensional wine.

CELLARING AND FOOD MATCHING

Such wines are the ultimate match for many game and red meat dishes. If designing a meal to match his wine, think savoury and avoid any overtly sweet sauces. Serve at approximately 18° C. Careful cellaring for 10 years or more will lead to increased suppleness and complexity.
