Red Blend 2018 – Black Market Deal #35459
- Rich, full-bodied
- Hawke's Bay
We’ve finally secured the next vintage of one of our mofo members’ most memorable Hawke’s Bay deals. This is going to cause quite the stir! This Bordeaux blend boasts the ‘right bank’ style with predominantly merlot as the make up, with generous splashes of cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc fleshing out a wonderfully complete Kiwi masterpiece.
If you love that richer, rounder style and you’re looking to dip your toe in the waters of another nation’s wine to see how they roll, confidently order this. The sheer amount of mofos that re-ordered this super deal after knocking off just one bottle with their nearest and dearest was nothing short of impressive. With eighteen months spent in french oak barriques (40% of which is brand spanking new) after being hand-harvested at the optimum ripeness, this classy drop will last many years to come. If you have the self control not to drink the whole lot at your next dinner party, it may actually last that long!

Hawke's Bay is New Zealand's oldest wine region, with climate similar to Bordeaux and Sancerre in France. It's no surprise then that their best wines happen to be Cabernet blends and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as Syrah. Unfortunately, most of this gets slurped up within NZ, and we have to bang down doors to get some over to Australia. Lucky for you mofos, we're pretty good at this.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
