The buying team at Fine Wine Delivery are constantly searching for extraordinary wine deals... and wines that deliver massively beyond their asking price like this come around infrequently. This icon Hawkes Bay Winery has come to Fine Wine Delivery because they need to quickly cash up several hundred cases of this premium Reserve Merlot Cabernet to assist their cash flow. And they can trust us to create an impenetrable cloak of secrecy around the brand to protect its future. The fruit comes off densely planted older Estate vines, it is handpicked into small bins, hand sorted to ensure only the best grapes make the grade, then gently pressed via traditional basket press. Hand plunged during and post ferment to achieve quality extraction of tannin, colour and flavour... then aged in French oak barriques for 18-months. Normally it would be preaged 5-years in the winery’s cellars before release. However, this striking 2020 vintage is being cashed up at a mammoth saving of $22.01 bottle – I’m sure our customers will be delighted to bank such a huge saving and age this premium Reserve Hawkes Bay Merlot Cabernet themselves. Totally in balance you don’t have to wait 5-years, you can drink it today with a nice cut of steak or roast beef/lamb. Disguised under our proprietary Fine Wine Delivery label we are sworn to secrecy as usual; you will be blown away by the phenomenal quality from the first sip.


aromas of blackcurrant leaf, fresh tobacco leaves, hints of dark chocolate, dark plum and with an earthy, complexing streak that takes this wine to another level of class.


A full bodied rich wine with dark berry fruits and the vibrant nature of freshly picked blackcurrants, cedar. The tannins a robust with a fine fury quality, combined with the density of fruit and acid thread, this wine will find lots of favour with lovers of big, well built Bordeaux varietal blends. No rush to drink or decant one hour prior to serving. It will match with all juicy cuts of red meat.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
