$22.00 NZDPer Bottle

This complex blend showcases a great vintage on our Havelock North vineyard. Dark and brooding on the nose with black doris plum, aromatic jasmine and underlying mineral notes of graphite and tar. The palate is broad and soft with supple front palate tannins and soft vanilla oak enveloping the fruit. Drink now or cellar for 5-7 years.

This wine was made from grapes grown on both the stony, sandy lower terrace of the vineyard and the heavier upper terrace. The varietal mix was 65% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. The grapes were soaked for 4 to 7 days then fermented. The wine was then aged for 10 months in oak barrels, 25% new including some American oak.
