THE WESTIE MERLOT CABERNET
A fruit driven, medium-bodied red wine. Designed for enjoyment on release, it will, however, benefit from short-term aging.
A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon
Hawke’s Bay - Gimblett Gravels
An ideal partner for an antipasto platter featuring a range of salamis and smoked meats, or any meaty casserole. Great with lamb shanks on the bbq!
The grapes are harvested in April and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The blend is assembled early in the new year after some time in oak barrels.
Blackberry notes from the Cabernet mingle on the nose with the softer plum and boysenberry aromas of Merlot. The palate is of medium weight and round with upfront sweet fruit. The fruit lingers on the finish over a savory background with light cedar oak notes.
