Crafted by acclaimed Hawkes Bay winemaker Rod McDonald from a gorgeous coastal Te Awanga vineyard, this is fine Hawkes Bay Merlot, Cabernet Franc that both drinks well now and has the capacity to flourish with time. Classy.
The winery writes "Rich and crimson in colour, the nose of this wine displays an aroma of currant, cassis and tobacco characters, the palate is full and soft with excellent balance and structure. A wine styled for approachability but will reward with careful cellaring."
Excellent wine - doesn't sit in the cellar for very long!
