Why do we love this wine?

When this wine lands, you know it was a good vintage, because it’s only produced in the best. And this is one of the Hawke’s Bay stalwarts, in the vanguard of those who are really showing Bordeaux where value meets incredible quality. And the Right Bank should be watching out for this merlot-predominant blend, with a look of dismay. The value here is off the scale.

Concentrated

Nothing is skimped. The crops are carefully thinned to tiny yields for fruit concentration, and everything is done by hand. Once picked, sorted and fermented, it’s basket pressed to French oak, about 50% of which is brand spanking. The results are concentrated, rich and ageworthy. Equally, it’s already wonderfully sweet-fruited and vibrant, so you don’t really need to wait. You get the best of both worlds, and those worlds are ‘power’ and ‘grace’.


Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article, absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
