From award-winning pedigree comes aÂ classic style Hawke's BayÂ MerlotÂ matured in French oak barrels. It'sÂ bold and structured yet smooth with ripe tannins. Delicious drinking!
The wine is bright in colour. The nose has vibrant aromas of dark plum with sweet spice with savoury notes. The palate is medium bodied with rich and intense fruit. The wine finishes with soft, fine tannins and lingering spicy fruit.
Grapes were picked from warm inland vineyard sites on Ohiti Road and the Gimblett Gravels before being brought together for pressing, fermentation and ageing. Malolactic fermentation followed pressing to enhance texture and maturation followed in tank to retain vibrant fruit characters.Â
