2015 Stanley Estates Hawkes Bay Merlot
The vineyard is nestled under Mount Tapuae-O-Uenuku (Maori" "Footprint of the Rainbow"). At the top of the Southern Alps, it strongly influences the climate, with its rain shadow bestowing low rainfall and low humidity upon the Awatere Valley. Along with sunny days and cool nights this creates perfect conditions for slow steady ripening and flavour development. Awatere grapes have a distinctive fruity yet steely and herbaceous flavour quite different to those produced elsewhere in Marlborough.
What The Critics Say
Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2013)
"The wine combines appealing fruit richness with savoury undertone, displaying aromas of dark berry, game, spice and roasted nut. It is nicely weighted and textured on the palate with lovely generosity, finishing lingering and delicately dry. At its best: now to 2019."
