COLOUR: A deep garnet red

NOSE: Ripe aromatics of plums and dark fruits with a smoky, oaky tannin complexity

PALATE: The Merlot, that dominates the blend, contributes a plumminess to the fruit spectrum while hand-crafting using French oak has added palate and aromatic complexity. The palate is richly textured and finishes with great length of fine, structural tannins that are a hallmark of the sub-region

REGION: 100% Hawke’s Bay

VINTAGE: The growing season weather conditions were perfect for bringing the fruit to full maturity. The large diurnal temperature fluctuations have provided excellent ripeness while still retaining elegant fruit flavours.

WINEMAKING: Made from hand-picked fruit sourced from Hawke’s Bay vineyards whose deep, well-drained shingle soil structure encourages the fruit to optimise its tannin levels. Batches were fermented separately, mostly with indigenous yeast, and then a period of post-ferment maceration was observed to help tannin extraction and development. The batches were individually basket-pressed and all have a full malolactic fermentation. Oak aging for 18 months was followed by blending then several months in tank to harmonise prior to fining and bottling
