Intense deep crimson with vibrant purple hue. An aromatic blood plum and dark chocolate nose with an array of ripe blackberries, supported by toasty American oak An elegant tannin structure of support and power.

Pair with succulent beef cheeks with polenta, braised lamb shanks or savour the flavours with vintage cheddar cheeses.

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Merlot Cab Franc

Winery description
"The Beach House Merlot Cabernet Franc blend is a brand new wine in our portfolio. This vintage we trialled adding some Cabernet Franc to our Merlot and low and behold! A new wine was born. The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and fermented separately in small open topped vats where they were gently hand plunged and pumped over to aid in extracting the maximum amount of flavour and colour from the berries. The wine spent 11 months in fine French oak. The Merlot Franc screams black forest cake with loads of dense plums and chocolate. Soft and plush across the palate but with plenty of weight and length, this will pair perfectly with slow cooked beef cheeks. Will drink nicely well into the 2020’s"

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Montepulciano

GOLD MEDAL - Hawke's Bay A&P Bayleys Wine Awards

Montepulciano is an Italian grape variety grown in the Abruzzi region of Central Italy. This block of Montepulciano grape vines have adapted remarkably well to the Gimblett Gravels site and the resulting wines have produced myriad Gold medals and Trophy’s to prove it!

Cherries, cranberries and dark chocolate with a touch of cedar are evident on the nose whilst the palate is intense and fruit driven. Bold, bright, boysenberries interplay with cedar and spice coming from the fine grained French oak. Currently delicious, but would easily cellar well into the 2020’s. But who can wait that long? … Seriously?

Beach House (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Syrah

Winery Note
"2019 was an exceptional vintage right across the board, but the one variety that seems to benefit most from these hot and dry vintages is undoubtedly Syrah.
Our 2019 Syrah was handpicked on April 5th in pristine condition with the infamous ‘dimple’ effect (caused by dehydration within the berries) evident right across the Syrah block. Once picked, the grapes were de-stemmed into an open topped fermenter and left to undergo wild fermentation. The wine was gently plunged and pumped over throughout fermentation to aid flavour and colour extraction. The wine spent a total of 27 days on skins before it was pressed off into French oak barrels consisting of 33% new oak. The wine was then left to age for 12 months in barrel

Boysenberries and blueberries alongside subtle cedar and spice are apparent on the nose whilst the palate is concentrated and powerful with a strong dark berry core. This is a strong example of Gimblett Gravels Syrah from an outstanding vintage."

Cave De Fleurie (France) 2019 Beaujolais Villages

Beaujolais is the most southern wine growing region in Burgundy, though it is substantially different from rest of Burgundy, both in climate and in the wine it produces, it is often thought of as its own appellation. Beaujolais produces light, dry red wines made from Gamay grapes. 

Seductive and well-balanced with delectably soft tannins.   Beneath its intense deep garnet hue, this wine offers an elegant and expressive nose with intense and slightly jammy red fruit aromas.  The wine is supple and well-balanced on entry to the palate, with smooth, melted tannins which give it a very attractive and succulent character.

Charcoal Gully (Otago) Sallys Pinch 2014 Pinot Noir

93 Points Excellent Cameron Douglas (Feb 2021)
"Vibrant, youthful and fruity bouquet with aromas of dark cherries and dried raspberry, spices of toasty French oak barrel, a stony earthy quality and youthful complexity. On the palate - powerful, fruity, earthy and dry. Flavours reflect the core of red berry fruits and raspberry, there’s plenty of tannin and acidity for texture with fruit and oak flavours for contrast. Still youthful and can remain in your cellar if you like. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+. If opened between 2022 and 2024 - I suggest it be enjoyed with food."

4 Stars - Michael Coopers Buyers Guide (2020)
"Still on sale, the deeply coloured 2014 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard red, hand-harvested at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, and matured for 10 months in French oak casks (32 per cent new). Fragrant, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, it has generous, well-ripened cherry, plum and spice flavours, and a firm finish.``
