2016-GG-Te-Kahu

Decanter 92 points – Pure and savoury, with a dense damson and dark berry core. Very accomplished and complex, with great acidity, this will age well. Drink 2020 through 2025.
Why we like it…

A merlot dominant blend (63%) grown in the Hawkes Bay Gimblett Gravels Vineyard – one of the most sun drenched climates in New Zealand. Hand harvested and matured in oak. Drinking beautifully now – keep it in the cellar for longer if you can…

  • Te Kahu means ‘the cloak’ in Māori – referring to the mist that cloaks the Tukituki Valley
