Hawke's Bay Merlot Cabernet

Carefully selected from vineyards throughout the Hawke’s Bay region, we combine soft, textural Merlot with robust Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a full-flavoured dry red wine which is softly textured with a spicy finish.

Recommended Food:
Enjoy it with a whole scotch fillet ideally cooked on the bbq. Also would make a good partner for ratatouille.

Recommended Cellaring:
2-4 years

Production Notes:
Parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at optimum ripeness. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tank with frequent pump-overs and plungings to ensure good colour and tannin extraction. The blend was assembled and spent several months in oak prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:
Aromas of black and red currants. Light-medium bodied. Flavours of redcurrants and blackcurrant combined with herb and oak spice. Good balance.
