Hawke's Bay Merlot

Hawke's Bay Merlot


A wine to capture your senses! The wine is a deep red colour with purple hues in the glass. Aromas of black fruits and dark plum mingle with a hint of forest floor spice and seasoned oak.  Dense dark fruits persist giving a lovely mid palate sweetness, with hints of dark cocoa, well balanced by smooth silky tannins.

Named in Top 50 wines at 2019 New World Wine Awards

4.5 Stars

“Attractively fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, floral and almond characters with a touch of spicy complexity. The palate is succulent and rounded, delivering juicy fruit flavours and silky texture, elegantly structured by fine, chalky tannins. Medium-full-bodied and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2020.” Sam Kim
