Merlot grown on Cypress hillside vineyard has produced a fruit driven wine with aromas of chocolate and deep berry fruits. The palate is warm with spicy plums and a soft cedary finish. Family owned boutique producer Cypress is situated in the Gimblett Gravels, Hawkes Bay. Crafting unique, premium wines in limited quantities has been their focus for the past 8 years. The flavours are intense and the wines show great regional character.
