Description

This single vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc is off a Te Awanga vineyard planted over 25 years ago. Premium fruit was harvested off the back of a another very strong Hawke’s Bay vintage. After de-stemming and light crushing the fruit was fermented hot to extract colour, tannin and flavour, before being transferred to French oak for 18 months of barrel aging.

Smells

redcurrant, cassis, leather and tobacco.

Tastes

a medium bodied wine with soft tannins and a great structure. Very enjoyable in its youth, with rich foods, or can be cellared comfortably for up to 7 years.
