Celebrating the 25th vintage of Te Awa wines, the 2018 Single Estate Merlot Cabernet continues the fine pedigree of outstanding red blends produced from this unique vineyard.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"This is an elegant expression of a Bordeaux style red blend from a superb vintage. The nose is intense, driven by blackcurrant and plum. Complexity comes from suggestions of cedar and rosemary. The palate is soft and fruit-driven with flavours of berry fruit and Christmas cake spice complemented by integrated oak. The tannins are fine-grained and supple with a bright focussed palate leading to a long and lingering finish."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 vintage is a blend of Merlot  and Cabernet Sauvignon, matured in French oak barriques (35 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, with strong blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, showing very good complexity, and a smooth, finely textured finish. An elegant, generous, supple red, it's already enjoyable, but well worth cellaring to 2023+."


91/100 James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, October 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"A bright and fresh array of red flowers, berries and plums with a smooth bed of fine and easy tannin that carries long, fresh and juicy on the palate. Easy going, fresh and flavorful style here. Drink now."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
