From award-winning pedigree comes a Gimblett Gravels Merlot matured in French oak barrels. It's fine, rich and complex with balance and softness. Over-delivering on all accounts!
Merlot that packs a punch. Grapes were picked from around the Hawkes Bay before being brought together for pressing, fermentation and ageing. There was a combination of stainless steel and French oak used which have resulted in a complex and balanced wine, with easy tannins and great fruit flavour. Try it with slow cooked beef cheeks, or spaghetti and meatballs in a rich tomato sauce. Drink now.
18/20, Diana Hawkins, Certified Sommelier & MSc "A subtle mix of red and black fruit on the nose perfumed with lavender and thyme. Plush on the palate with fine tannins and flavours of Black Doris plum, red currant, and ripe cherries."
