A super Merlot from Gisborne on the east coast of New Zealand. The nose is fresh and fruity, with red berry aromas wafting from the glass with hints of subtle and savoury French Oak.
The palate is lively with blueberries and cherry all beautifully supported by flavours of lightly toasted French oak. A soft finish, with length and intensity which is well-balanced and delicious!
This Merlot is perfect to share with some friends at a Sunday lunch. Greek Lamb Koftas with cumin, coriander and garlic, couscous and some warm pita pockets are on the menu. Don't forget a bowl of cucumber yoghurt with mint. Superb!
