Description

  • Savoury oak
  • Ripe plum
  • Black cherries
  • Vanilla

"This is a comforting red offering lovely ripe fruit flavours of dark plum, cassis and spiced cherry with nuances of dried herb, cedar and cocoa. The palate is succulent and plump, and delivers attractive fruit intensity and silky texture, finishing long and smooth. The wine offers terrific value and drinkability" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2017

A complex Marlborough Merlot bursting with ripe, juicy plums, blackberries, and vanilla notes with a perfectly balanced elegant structure. Harvested from a number of naturally low cropping vineyards from Marlborough’s Wairau Plain, this merlot is intensely concentrated with aromas of ripe black cherries and savoury oak to finish.  The young wine was kept in contact with skins and tasted daily until the right extraction and balance was achieved then gently pressed.   Once settled it was then racked to seasoned French oak where it underwent secondary fermentation.     

Drinking beautifully from the outset, this wine can be enjoyed young or with careful cellaring, will mature into a fuller more complex wine that can be enjoyed for the next seven years or beyond.

Food Pairing: Beautiful with fillet steak and salad.
