This wine is made from a blend of grapes grown in the Gimblett Gravels sub-region of Hawkes Bay. These free-draining shingle soils have excellent drainage and low vigor. Our vineyard sites are close planted and yields per vine are kept low to maximize fruit quality.
This is a full-bodied and rich Gimblett Gravels blend, densely colored and exhibiting a bouquet of plums, red fruits, dried herbs and hints of oak. The palate is soft and generous in nature, making it easy to enjoy as a young wine; however, well-ripened tannins suggest it has the potential to age exceptionally well.
Enjoy with most meat and game dishes, but especially lamb.
