Description

A major FWD Co. discovery... a five-acre amphitheatre like vineyard dramatically perched on a steep, terraced hillside presiding high above Mission Estate. Tironui is a powerful, brooding wine from an excellent vintage and is made expensively. Three varietals (Malbec 70%, Merlot 18% and Cabernet Sauvignon 12%) are co-picked and co-fermented. This is a labour of love for the owners! You won't get rich selling labour intensive expensively made Bordeaux style Hawke's Bay red at FWD Co.'s price. It's a boutique quality focused production and we pretty much buy it all as it must be the no.1 value Bordeaux style red wine in NZ.

Smells

Deep dark berries, liquorice, with hints of leather and smoke.

Tastes

Beautifully structured and concentrated with dark berry and blackcurrant fruits. The oak balance is perfect, giving a nutty character and touch of spice. Warm and chocolatey with a fine tannin structure and softly creamy finish. This 2016 Tironui is as impressive as it's ever been!
