Esk Valley Gimblett Gravels Merlot Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


SKU 54252


This is a full bodied and rich Hawkes Bay blend. Densely coloured, it has a bouquet of blackberry and cherry with a subtle oak seasoning, while the palate is softly textured and generous in nature. Due to its well ripened tannins the wine can be enjoyed young, although it also shows the potential to age gracefully and gain further complexity. Food Pairing: Enjoy with red meat and game dishes.

Wine AdvocateThe medium-bodied 2015 Gimblett Gravels Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon / Malbec offers aromas of tobacco, black cherry and plum. It's smooth and supple, in no need of additional aging, but it should continue to drink well for 4-5 more years. An attractive hint of vanilla emerges on the finish.
