Esk Valley HB Merlot Cabernet Malbec 13.5%, 750ml
This wine is made from a blend of grapes grown in the Gimblett Gravels sub region of Hawkes Bay. These free draining shingle soils have excellent drainage and low vigour. Our vineyard sites are close planted and yields per vine are kept low to maximise fruit quality.
This is a full bodied and rich Hawkes Bay blend, densely coloured and exhibiting a bouquet of plums, red fruits, dried herbs and hints of oak.
The palate is soft and generous in nature, making it easy to enjoy as a young wine; however well ripened tannins suggest it has the potential to age exceptionally well.
