Te Awa / Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon / Hawkes Bay / 2016
Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon
This is an elegant expression of a Hawkes Bay red blend. The nose is intense with aromas of Black Doris plum, cassis and cedar while the palate is soft and fruit driven, with flavours of sweet, dark berries and subtle spice complemented by integrated oak. The tannins are fine-grained and supple leading to a long and lingering finish.
