Grown on selected Hawke’s Bay vineyards and matured in French oak barrels, this fine VS Merlot is rich and complex whilst showing balance and softness. Very attractive wine that typically sells for $20+ at the Mission cellar door. Great value.
The winery writes "This is a fine, complex Hawke’s Bay Merlot. The oak is in balance and respects the wine’s structure and character. There is nice intensity on the front palate with very good tannins that are quite firm at bottling, but which will soften with time. The wine is harmonious, showing balance and softness with a sweet finish"
