The eagerly awaited inaugural red release from the Dada range. It is also believed to be the first red made and bottled in NZ without any Sulphur Dioxide. You've got to try it!
Dada is the brainchild of winemakers Kate Galloway and David Ramonteu (of Alluviale fame). Their aim with this second release (the first red in the range) was to make a blended dry wine which is focused, complex, dense yet elegant. To combine new and old world influences - lightness and purity with depth and substance.
Dada wines are not varietally defined - the varieties used will change each year depending on vintage conditions. The final blend in 2009 comprises 3 varieties –Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. This blend is also a nod to the little known exchange of wine that existed between Bordeaux and the Cotes du Rhone in the 19th century. The grapes for this wine were sourced from vineyards in one of the warmest and most renowned parts of Hawkes Bay; the Gimblett Gravels. This is incredibly complex wine. Ripe black cherries, Black doris plums and hints of wet earth, mushrooms, leather and tar on the nose the palate is soft and developed with mouth filling flavours of overripe plums, blackcurrant leaves and smoky bacon (pork fat) notes. Very French - but at the same time unlike any French wine we've ever tasted! Unique.
