Country: New Zealand, Hawkes Bay
Tasting Notes: Vibrant deep garnet colour. Enticing aromas of dark plums and cassis meld with those of nutmeg, tobacco and sandalwood in a classically composed nose. The palate is rich and yet quietly composed, with layers of flavour and tannin linked by fine acidity and the refined dusty tannins of the gravels. Finishes dry and long.
Varietal: Blend of 73% Merlot, 13% Malbec, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc
Pairing: Rich red meat dishes
