HAWKE'S BAY MERLOT
AROMA AND PALATE
On the nose are lifted aromas reminiscent of roses, cedar, sandalwood and warm spice, while the oak delivers underlying dark chocolate and savoury notes.
The heart of this wine is its dense, brooding plum and dark berry fruit. The palate is rich, weighty and long - driven by a firm yet fine-grained tannin structure.
This Merlot is well matched to game and red meats, cured meats and other savoury, robustly flavoured dishes.
