Country: New Zealand Region: Hawkes Bay
Category: Merlot/Malbec Color: Red
Producer: Wild Rock
Hawke’s Bay is blessed with a diverse range of soils and micro climates that create endless possibilities for wine growing. The Gimblett Gravels are the warmest vineyard area in New Zealand with ideal climate factors such as sunshine hours, humidity and rainfall. This combination of fertile soils and continental climate allows us to produce Hawke’s Bay wine with great complexity and flavours distinctive for this region.
Our Merlot dominant blend is grown in the Gimblett Gravels Wine Growing District located on the ancient bed of the Ngaruroro River which changed course in 1867 to expose soils for possible cultivation.
Tasting Note : Darkest red with purple hues. Vibrant nose of cassis, violets, boysenberry and the finest toasted oak. A richness of fruit emerges on first taste with beautifully integrated oak and fine dusty tannin creating a long and delicious finish.
