From the winemaker…
Puriri Hills Estate is often the first wine from Puriri Hills that people taste. It is a favourite of many fine dining restaurants. Often more approachable and ready to drink a bit younger. It is very expressive of the vintage year by year. Puriri Hills wines are released five to eight years after vintage to ensure that newly launched wines are ready to drink upon release.
59% Merlot, 14% Carmenere, 14% Cabernet franc, 13% Malbec
“Medium-bodied blend of merlot, carménère, cabernet franc and malbec with red fruits, violet, dried herb, cedar and mixed spice flavours. An elegant, savoury and quite complex wine with cellaring potential. Drink 2021-2026“ Bob Campbell MW
Less than 4200 bottles produced.
Why we love it…
Elegant and savoury, a lovely match for red meat and game
