Hinemoa Estate Moana Syrah Merlot 2012

Looking for a great value NZ blend, with a bit of age? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We managed to get our hands on this 2012 Syrah/Merlot blend out of Omaha Beach, just north of Auckland and we think it’s a winner. Plums and black cherries explode on the palate, and the ageing process has given it an interesting smoky, leathery backbone that lasts for ages. Keeping this any longer would be too long, so if you need a wine for right now this is the one for you.

Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer "Omaha Beach is home to a lot of impressive things, including some of this  country’s swishest seaside homes away from home and wines like this one, which is a blend of Syrah and Merlot. The Syrah provides the notes of black pepper and spice while Merlot contributes softness and this wine’s plush mouthfeel. The aging has been done for you with this wine, so drink this wine now or soon." 

13.5% abv. Syrah and Merlot grapes.
