Country: New Zealand, Hawkes Bay
Tasting Notes: The nose is brimming with blackberries, blackcurrants and forest fruits, which are joined by plum and tasty savoury notes. Liquorish and spice aromas intermingle perfectly in this Merlot Cabernet. The palate is sweet and abundantly fruitful on entry, developing complex savoury notes that mingle delightfully with the fruit. Gentle oak supports layers of cocoa and leather. The tannins are soft, the weight full-ish and the finish of this wine is long with lingering dark berry fruits.
Varietal: Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Pairing: This Merlot Cabernet is an ideal partner for an antipasto platter featuring a range of salamis and smoked meats; or any meaty casserole, such as lamb shanks.
