This classic Hawkes Bay Merlot dominant blend is another stellar effort from winemaker Steve Skinner. Immediately attractive wine with upfront juiciness and dark fruit characters that reveal layers of spice and complexity as the wine opens in the glass. Highly recommended if you are shopping in this price band.
