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 'vintage of lifetime' - the very hot and near perfect 2013. 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

Current, cassis, leather and tobacco.

Tastes

Full palate with soft tannins and great structure. Very enjoyable in its youth, with rich foods, or can be cellared comfortably for up to 10 years.
