Description

"The Collaboration Wines Impression Red 2016 is an entry-level blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Smooth-textured and moderately dense red dark berry, cedar and subtle crushed herb flavours that are so well integrated it’s difficult to define individual flavours. The wine is more vinous than fruity. Great value at this price." Bob Campbell, The Real Review, June 2019

"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. 15% new oak. Fresh, suppleand refined with hints of chalk and gravel. Bright cherry and raspberry fruit: very fruity and expressive with classy texture and structure. A stylish, textural red." Jamie Goode’s Wine Anorak, October 2018

Deep red colour in the glass. Wonderfully soft bouquet with deep, dark plummy notes. Elegant, chocolatey, smooth and plummy. This rich blend showcases vibrant red and dark fruits, a fresh underlying savoury character.

An integral part of these wines, Hawkes Bay’s maritime climate, microclimates and soil types provide a rich canvas of vineyard sites to work with. The winemaker has selected sites from some of Hawkes Bay’s finest winegrowing sub-regions that represent the ultimate varietal expression of the wines in their portfolio. Because of the tiny production of Collaboration wines, all of the vines are tendered by hand (with the help of family and friends) to ensure fruit of the highest quality is produced.
