2013 Esk Valley Gimblett Gravels Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec

This is a full bodied, rich and rustic Hawkes Bay blend, a deep ruby red in colour with a bouquet of plums and cassis and hints of oak on the nose. It is textured, earthy, meaty with plenty of depth on the palate and a lovely long finish, probably best enjoyed with meat and gamey dishes.

Verdict: A soft yet structured wine, with plenty of depth and the potential to age for quite a few more years.
