2018 Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Vineyard ‘Te Kahu’ Bordeaux BlendRegular price $34.00
Deep Crimson Red in colour. Brooding notes of cassis and black olive backed by dried tobacco leaf and hints of caramel. Classic bordeaux blend with firm tannins framing rich dark fruit flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant. Will age beautifully.
54% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.
"This has a very rich plum nose with mulberry and well-integrated, spicy French-oak character. The palate has such well-judged balance and even shape. Super fresh and vibrant red plums and mulberries abound. The tannins are so smooth and layered. A thoroughly respectable Kiwi claret! A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
