"A plush, merlot-based blend, this is tightly structured around cabernet’s firm tannins and the toasty richness of oak. It’s potent while holding to a fresh, vibrant fruit, pointing toward venison or other lean game."
"As one of New Zealand’s best red wines, this blend is deeply coloured with aromatics hinting at black fruits, dried herbs, cocoa and cedar. The flavours typical of Gimblett Gravel Merlot blends tend towards fruitcake, cherry, chocolate and oak spice. The palate as a young wine is firm and tannic, needing time to truly show its best; however, the potential is evident. Dry and long finishing, this is truly fine wine." - winery
