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"

Giesen Estate (Hawkes Bay) 2020 Merlot

4.5 stars 90 - Wine Orbit

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

VINTAGE CONDITIONS 2019 will go down as one of the great Hawke’s Bay vintages. Moderate fl owering and fruit set in November and December set up the vines for moderate yields which in turn means high quality fruit with intense fl avour. Superb weather in early 2019 lasted ensuring harvesting of small, concentrated berries with superb flavour

Te Mata (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Coleraine Cabernet Merlot

Very limited stocks. Don't Miss Out.

5 Stars, 98/100 - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review
“An iconic brand meets a terrific vintage. The result is a “must have” wine for collectors and investors. This is elegance on a grand scale and one of the best vintages I’ve tasted.”

5 Stars, 100/100 - Sam Kim, Wine orbit

97/100 Cameron Douglas MS

Te Mata are calling this a  "fairytale vintage" showing both power and grace. Described as "Beauty and the Beast, capturing a new depth and power, with an exquisite perfume, and spellbinding enchantment."

Surely one for collectors, if you manage to get some.....

Midnight-dark ruby shimmers with a magenta edge. Coleraine ’19 is heralded by fragrant black roses, cherry, bramble, raspberry syrup and woodsmoke. A kiss of wild strawberry and dark chocolate transforms into a seductive palate laden with dark, ripe, forest berries. Majestic, velvet tannin entwines with the brightness and purity of classic Coleraine in a tale as old as time, creating captivating length and balance.

83 points Sam kim - Wine Orbit
"Fruity and nicely lifted, the bouquet shows dark cherry, dried herb, floral and clove notes, leading to a gently weighted palate offering bright fruit flavours with smooth texture, offering friendly drinking. At its best: now to 2022."

Winesale has been working hard to bring to New Zealand a very well made, easy drinking and unbeatable value range of Chilean wines. We truly believe the The Terra Vega range, from Luis Felipe Edwards, hits the mark bringing with it a string of medals and awards.  Among them:

"New World Producer of the Year" - Sommelier Wine Awards (2016) 
"Chilean Producer of the Year" - International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) (2012, 2017)

Chilean Merlot had long been recognised as, great value, easy drinking, benchmark drinking. Terra Vega offers all of this and more...

Intense red color with violet tints. Presenting, aromas of fresh red fruits with soft notes of dried fruit. On the palate it has medium body, soft tannins and notes of dark fruit with a long persistence. Big fruit and full of flavour, yet lightly dances on the pallet.
