CLASSIC, JUICY HAWKE'S BAY MERLOT STEAL
From the first vintage in 1981, Stables wines have been synonymous with producing exceptionally well-made wines at a deliciously affordable price point. Founded by Hawke's Bay winemaking legend Alwyn Corban, the Stables Reserve range focuses on producing classic wines from carefully sourced parcels of grapes from around Hawke's Bay.
With fragrant notes of blackberry, plum and raspberry, this juicy merlot is all charm. With silky tannins and some subtle oak influences, this gentle red is the perfect midweek drop. An absolute steal at $15.99 - you simply can't go wrong.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's fruit forward and beautifully fragrant on the nose, showing dark plum, thyme, floral and mixed spice aromas. The palate is equally charming with bright fruit flavours with supple texture, finishing lingering and juicy."
The winery writes "Full and fruity on the nose with plum, blackberry, savoury leather and vanillin oak. Soft and round, this well balanced wine has fresh plum and berry flavours. Fine tannins add a gentle texture and subtle oak lingers on the palate."
