Te Awanga Est Merlot CF 750ml



Premium grapes were first grown in Te Awanga at the
beginning of last century. The warm coastal climate, gentle
sea breezes and shallow clay soils combine to produce award
winning wines of great varietal flavour and finesse.
Hawke’s Bay enjoyed a settled season in in 2015, expert
canopy management, including shoot thinning and leaf
plucking, has ensured vine health, ideal flavours and clean,
ripe fruit.

The grapes where gently destemmed but not crushed, regular
cap management during ferment meant optimal tannin
extraction. After post ferment maceration the wine aged in
oak to further enhance the structure before it was blended
and lightly egg white fined.

Rich and crimson in colour, this wine displays aromas of
black cherry, cassis and cigar box. The palate is full, rich and
soft with flavours of plum and cedar. It is a wine of excellent
balance and structure. A wine styled for approachability but
will reward careful cellaring.
