THE QUAFFER RED DEAL OF YOUR LIFETIME
VINES PULLED | REMAINING MERLOT STOCKS SLASHED TO CLEAR BY THE WINERY.
Kumeu River ranks in any discussion of New Zealand's finest wine producers and when we call them 'iconic', that's a fact - not an opinion. We have never seen a Kumeu River release at this price before and this 2014 Merlot is in the form of its life.
The winery, led by Micheal Brajkovich MW, have pulled their Merlot vines and we have been asked to clear remaining stocks of their Village Merlot. This eminently attractive wine has long been the darling of the Auckland cafe and restaurant scene and the perfectly bottle aged 2014 is in banging form with rich mocha / choco-berry flavours and pillow soft tannins.
If you like the idea of having one of the most prestigious brands in the New Zealand wine market as your everyday drinker this summer, the rules are simple:
1. Buy every case you can and
2. Cut everyone you know in on the action.
For the price you pay - not bad. Easy red with a bit of weight
