Farmgate Merlot Cabernet Franc (12 bottles) - Including Freight!

12 Bottles - Includes freight!
Availability: Out of stock
Shipping included

Variety: Merlot Cabernet Franc.  Blend:  Merlot 95% and Cabernet Franc 5%.  Region: Hawke’s Bay.  Sub Region: Bridge Pa & Te Awanga.

The merlot was grown on a small, meticulously managed block in the Bridge Pa triangle and the Cabernet Franc at Te Awanga on the coast.  The vines were left to crop at a naturally low level thus ensuring perfect balance between flavour, ripeness and phenolic components in the wine.   

Style:  Dry

Vintage: 2013

Appearance: Intense and vibrant red. 

Aroma: The wine has lifted aromas of raspberries, cherries and black currants.

Palate: Silky smooth texture with vibrant flavours of currants and cherries.  Secondary notes of dry herbs give the complexity and a full mouth feel.

Vinification The 2013 vintage allowed for full and even ripening of the fruit giving us the opportunity to make the wine in a natural and hands off manner. This retains the naturalness of the characters and lets the wine express the terrior of the site.   

Enjoy with: Red meats, portobello mushrooms, rosemary, mint and green olives.
