Description

Grown on free-draining soils on Ohiti Road and in the renowned Bridge Pa Triangle, the 2016 vintage was the fourth straight excellent year for Merlot in the Hawke's Bay. A long, settled autumn provided ideal conditions for ripening Merlot, yielding this generous wine with superb mouth feel and serious drinkability.

Smells

A lovely mix of florals, Black Doris plum and blackberry, with hints of milk chocolate.

Tastes

A finely creamed plush mouth-feel with juicy berry fruit and subtle savoury notes. Flavours of liquorice, cassis and plum carry right through the finish, framed by silky tannins and toasty oak. A totally moreish, soft wine, perfect for summer BBQs, wintery meat dishes, or just to enjoy by itself now through 2022.
