Why do we love this wine?

I have a theory:  all the best things hail from an east coast. Contentious, I know. But hear me out. You’ve got Notorious B.I.G, Jay Z, Byron beaches and, now, this 95 point cabernet merlot straight outta Hawkes Bay. Case in point, mofos. East coast rules, no matter where in the world. 

Profile

Cedar
Plum
Medium-bodied
Smooth
Elegant

Sourced from a selection of Te Awa’s oldest, most premium vineyard blocks, hand-picked, de-stemmed and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, this cab merlot is an elegant expression of a first-class NZ region. And from an outstanding vintage too. 

With a nose that’s driven by blackcurrant and plum, a complexity that suggests cedar and rosemary and a palate bursting with berry fruits and christmas cake, if you’re after a bright red with long finish then go east coast. Go east coast and never look back.
