Description

  • French oak
  • Ripe plum
  • Red fruit
  • Fine-grained tannins

Deeply coloured with brooding aromas of ripe plum and red fruits, Thornbury Merlot is soft and silky smooth.

Sourced from a pedigree of vineyards located in Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay which provides fullbodied, rich style wines. The vineyards are located on the famous Omahu Gravels, located on SH50 off Gimblett Road in the heart of Hawkes Bay's premium red winegrowing region. With its stony soils and sun-drenched conditions, there is simply no better place to grow Merlot in New Zealand.

The fruit was harvested off the Omahu Vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels then gently destemmed and crushed to tanks. The fermentation was pump over daily on skins to maximize colour and tannin extraction. The wine was pressed at dryness and maturated on French oak staves for 12 months before being blended, lightly egg-white fined and filtered before bottling.

Food Pairing: Full-bodied with silky fine-grained tannins make this a perfect food wine around the BBQ.
