This is an absolutely outstanding wine at this price point.
Te Kahu means The Cloak in Te Reo Maori and refers to the mist that envelops the Craggy Range Giants winery in the Tuki Tuki Valley, Hawkes Bay. Legend has it that this mist was used to protect a mythical Maori maiden from the sun as she visited her lover Te Mata.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​Deep crimson red. Complex aromatics of ripe plum, a touch of cassis, fresh rosemary and roasted meats. The palate is generous and approachable but also has a high level of sophistication with fine grained tannins enveloping a dense body of succulent black fruits."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Deeply translucent in the glass, not quite opaque. This is a deep dark brooding wine both on the nose and also initially in the palate that’s characterised by fine textured tannins and a rounded mouthfeel. Made from predominantly Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec mixed in, it offers up hints of violets, earthy brambly notes, nuances of chocolate and a suggestion of cigar box with lifted acidity brightening the finish. What stands out for me is the profound and lingering fruit purity."
92/100 Jamie Goode (2015 Vintage)
"Merlot-dominant blend with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Fresh and focused with a lovely gravelly edge to the lovely expressive red and black fruits. It’s really assured and harmonious with mid weight fruit working in harmony with the structure."
