Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 2010

Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 750ml 2010     
Sku: 1724418

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The fruit for Te Kahu is grown in the Hawkes Bay Gimblett Gravels Vineyard, which has one of the warmest, driest, most sundrenched climates in New Zealand. Stony gravel in the soil forces the vines to fight for water, giving the grapes a particular vibrancy. Fruit is hand harvested and destemmed before undergoing fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is matured in oak barriques before bottling.

Tasting notes
Blackberry, cinnamon, and minerals mesh for an intense and complex aroma and flavor profile. Layers of fine tannin lend tension to the opulent fruit flavors and provide the framework for the long and intense finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Oct 2012)
Blended of 80% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec, the 2010 Te Kahu Merlot Cabernets is deep garnet-purple in color with pronounced red and black plum aromas plus hints of mulberries, baking spices, mocha, pencil shavings and lavender. Medium bodied with a good amount of berry and spice flavors, the flesh is well supported by a medium level of velvety tannins and lively acid, finishing long. Drinking nicely now, it should keep to 2018+. ”

Food pairing
Terrific paired with red meat dishes.
