Delicious red blend, rich and warming for these cold winter months! Moana Park Estate is in the Hawkes Bay, on the east coast of the North Island. They’re known for their sustainable practices and wines that are certified vegan. Their 2019 Merlot Malbec also has a dash of Cabernet Franc thrown in which gives a green, vegetal note on the finish. Apart from that you’ll notice flavours of ripe black plums, sweet cherries, blackcurrants, and oak. The tannins are grippy and the body full. Try this one now and in the coming years.
Serve with lamb, beef and venison casseroles, and with semi-hard cheeses over the next 4-5 years.

The Growers’ Collection “creature series” gives the nod to the unique land where Moana Park's grapes are pressed. It features nautical creatures and tales of the sea because the land was after all, for thousands of years, nutrient dense seabed, raised from the ocean during the Napier Earthquake in 1931.
Moana Park Estate was started in 1981, when the first vineyards were planted on what used to be a large sheep station in the Hawkes Bay. Today, they produce a range of wines from their Estate Grown range, Grower’s Range and all the way up to their special Library releases.
