Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 2011

Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1754032

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.

 Wine Spectator 87 points (Jun 15 2013)
Offers a fresh band of cherry and currant flavors, with notes of black tea, spice, tobacco and pencil shavings. The tannins clamp down on the finish, giving this a firm edge. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2020. 1,800 cases imported.-MW

Food pairing
Terrific paired with red meat dishes.
