Winemaker's Notes:

This is a full-bodied and rich Hawkes Bay blend. Densely colored, it has a bouquet of dark fruits and subtle oak seasoning while the palate is softly textured and generous in nature, reflecting the high quality of the 2010 vintage. Due to its well ripened tannins the wine can be enjoyed as a young wine although it also shows the potential to age gracefully for many years gaining further complexity.

Blend: 74% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec

The winery sources fruit from Hawkes Bay, including the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels and Marlborough, as both regions consistently produce grapes of an extremely high quality.
