Tohu have done it again. Their aim is to capture the essence of the region with each varietal and this is a prime example of a smooth, full-bodied Hawkes Bay Merlot. They've nailed the blackberry and cocoa flavours and the fine, silky tannins are the cherry on top. Trust us, this is a goodie.
The winery writes "Black fruit and dark plum aromas seamlessly blend with subtle spicy notes in this smooth and silky Hawkes Bay Merlot. On the palate flavours of blackberry, cassis and hints of cocoa are balanced with fine tannins leading to a dry and richly textured finish."
