Merlot wines are not often made in serious style in Hawkes Bay (most are blends) so for lovers of this mellow variety, this is a real treat.

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
“Chocolate, plum, and blackberry aromas of Merlot have combined with the aromatic spice of oak aging to produce a fruit-dominant yet complex wine. Soft, ripe tannins make this wine serious yet eminently drinkable.”

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2024 (2022 Vintage)
“Sweetly ripe and perfumed, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, rich floral, warm spice and roasted nut aromas, followed by a silky-smooth palate offering succulent fruit flavours with spicy nuances. Beautifully rounded and supple with a lengthy delectable finish. At its best: now to 2030.”

4 Stars Michael Cooper, February 2024 (2022 Vintage)
“The powerful, sturdy 2022 vintage is a blend of Merlot (86 per cent) and Cabernet Sauvignon (14 per cent), estate-grown in the Gimblett Gravels and partly barrel-aged. Softly seductive, it is full-coloured, weighty and sweet-fruited, with generous, ripe, plum and spice flavours, showing moderate complexity, gentle acidity and a smooth finish. Already enjoyable, it should be at its best 2025+.”

90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, February 2024 (2022 Vintage)
“Youthful, vibrant, fresh and engaging bouquet filled with aromas of plums and wild boysenberries, some spice moments and a touch of earthy spice. Equally youthful, fruity, varietal and refreshing as the wine touches the palate. Fruit flavours mirror the bouquet, acidity is medium+ and the tannins layer in mouthful with a gentle grip. Balanced, well made and ready to drink from day of purchase through 2028.”
