Ngatarawa Stables Reserve Merlot 13.5%, 750ml
Stables Reserve is a fruit driven varietal range produced from small parcels of premium grapes from selected vineyards. These food-friendly wines have good palate weight and are styled to bring out the true varietal character of the region. The 2011 season started with a cool spring followed by a hot summer. The harvest period from March onwards was marked by variable moist easterly conditions interspersed with dry periods that kept winemakers on their toes.
