This classic red is a superior blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The grapes were sourced exclusively from our Mere Road vineyards, within the highly regarded Gimblett Gravels region of Hawkes Bay. Exceptional weather throughout harvest allowed the grapes to be picked at ideal ripeness and flavour.
This rich and luscious wine exudes intense blackcurrant and brambly blackberry flavours, with spicy, aniseed notes. Aging in quality seasoned oak confers a silky smooth texture, giving immediate appeal, or for judicious cellaring to reward over the medium term.
