Craggy Range Te Kahu Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 Hawke’s Bay 750ml

CHF 26.00

Craggy Range Te Kahu Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Deepest crimson red. Brooding aromatically with notes of cassis, black olive, dried tobacco and the faintest hint of roasted hazelnut. The palate is alive with rich, ripe red to black fruit, with a mid-palate that speaks volumes to the warm and long ripening period. A perfect example of medium-bodied Bordeaux style blends from the Gimblett Gravels.

From the winemaker…

Te Kahu means ‘the cloak’ in te reo Maori and refers to the mist that envelops Giants Winery in the Tukituki Valley. Legend has it that this mist was used to protect a mythical Maori maiden from the sun as she visited her lover Te Mata. This is a wine of richness and an abundance of black fruit flavours and a long structured finish.

A wonderful red from the sun-drenched Hawkes Bay Gimblett Gravels at a fantastic price! Drinking beautifully now – keep it in the cellar for longer if you can…
