Craggy Range Te Kahu Merlot Cabernet 2011

20th BIRTHDAY SUPERDEAL | perfectly bottle aged Gimblett Gravels red from one of NZ's greatest producers.

FIVE STARS 18.5/20 Raymond Chan "an elegant, refined Merlot-based wine with intensity and harmony". 

This is a once in a blue moon opportunity to buy perfectly bottle aged red wine from one of New Zealand's finest wine producers. Add in the fact that Craggy Range seldom, if ever, discount their wines and you start to understand the significance of this important opportunity. 

Te Kahu has always been a brilliant buy - a finely crafted but affordable  'Bordeaux-esque'  wine in the classically elegant, fine wine style of the best New Zealand reds. 2011 was a challenging vintage but the Craggy team nailed this wine and it is showing superbly - softly rounded and plush with a lick of fresh acidity on the finish. We were blown away when we tried it and we are 100% confident that anyone who gets their hands on a case will immediately wish they were braver and ordered more. 

STOCK IS LIMITED. We fully expect Te Kahu 2011 to hold in this optimal drinking form for at least another 2 years. Climb in.

Tasting Notes
FIVE STARS Raymond Chan who write "Very dark, deep, black-hued, purple-red colour. This has an elegant and fragrant bouquet with ripe black berried fruits and boysenberry elements complexed by herb and violetty floral notes, all subtly interwoven and showing finesse. Elegantly sized on palate, this is refined and tightly bound with energy and tension for good linearity. Sweet plum, black and redcurrant, cedar and spice flavours unfold and follow the fine-grained tannin line. This is a smaller-scale, but very well-concentrated Merlot-based wine that will develop over 6-8+ years. 70% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec and 8% Cabernet Franc, fermented to 12.8% alc., the wine aged 13 months in 19% new French oak".
