A limited stock allocation of an exceptional wine dedicated to Tom McDonald; a pioneering figure who's commonly referred to as the father of red wine in New Zealand.
"An amalgam of rich, ripe, dark fruit is overlaid with beguiling, lifted aromatics including violet, sandalwood and cedar with hints of dried woody herbs. In contrast to these lifted elements, subtle notes of cacao, vanilla and dried currant bring a luxuriousness to the aroma and flavour profile."
"Structurally, the wine leads with beautiful fruit weight and richness across the mid palate, typical of good Hawke’s Bay Merlot. This is a multidimensional blend that simultaneously shows great depth of dark, brooding flavour whilst expressing a haunting array of gentle perfume - the ultimate expression of great Hawke’s Bay blends."
"Tom is our tribute to the late Tom McDonald (1907-1987). A passionate and visionary winemaker who devoted his life to producing outstanding New Zealand wines at the site of the current Church Road Winery. Tom McDonald is widely regarded as the father of red wine in New Zealand."
97/100, Bob Campbell MW "A blend of two-thirds cabernet sauvignon and one-third merlot grown on the Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa Triangle subregions. Fine-boned red with a silken, seamless texture and a very appealing dark berry, spice and subtle floral aroma. This is a truly powerful yet supremely elegant red with potential to become even more exciting with bottle age." June 2019
