More information about the product


In 1876 the floods in New Zealand’s region of Hawkes Bay turned some rivers into the land. After the floods subsided the Ngaruroro River had changed its course and a vista of gravel was left behind on a latitude of 39.2S in a warm sun-filled valley, greened lightly with spring rains. Some were farmed by the Gimblett family, but by most, it was seen as a useless wasteland, only fit to quarry. So a quarry began….almost until the local vignerons saved the land for wine. The warm, gravelly soils are perfect for the production of Merlot and the moderate heat allows the wine to retain freshness and structure without showing over-ripe characters. The result is a rich, ripe wine with ample ‘dusty’ tannins and a lush, warm texture similar to other wines made in the area.


Deep garnet with youthful purple hue. Complex and varietal aromatic array of black Doris plum, ripe cherry, wooden spices and finely toasted oak. Seductive and luscious on approach the wine has a pure fruit core with fine dusty tannins finishing long and dry. Recommended Cellaring: Up to 5 to 12 years from vintage. Rich red meat dishes.
