4.5 stars 90 Points - Sam kim Wine Orbit

Fruit was carefully chosen from Hawkes’s Bay sub-regions recognised for their quality Merlot - Bridge Pa Triangle, Woodthorpe and Moteo.

After selective harvesting fruit was immediately taken to the winery where it was gently pressed. A short cold soak was undertaken to build mouthfeel and colour, followed by a hot ferment to maximise flavour. Following fermentation the wine was left to rest and mature in used French oak for six months.

A generous Merlot with perfumed plum, spice and delicious notes of mocha, a delectable smooth and supple wine.
