Church Road Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2019
NZ$45.00 / bottle
Description : “Blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are one of the most challenging and exciting wine styles to produce. There is a synergy between these two varieties that produces some of the most complete, complex, fragrant and satisfying styles of red wine in the world. Hawke’s Bay, along with parts of the California’s Napa Valley, was identified by the U.K’s Decanter magazine, as one of the few New World wine regions that could challenge Bordeaux in the production of such wines.” Chris Scott, Chief Winemaker
Size : 750ml
Tasting Notes : A core of dark berry fruit, cherry and plum is lifted by top notes of fragrant cassis, subtle spice, violet, rosewood and cedar. A savoury dark earthy complexity brings a more serious, brooding undertone to the wine. On the palate the wine is full bodied with good mid palate flesh, finishing with a long, fine tannin structure that will soften with time and ensure good cellaring potential. Well matched to a wide range of full flavoured game and red meat dishes.
