Te Motu, Red Bordeaux Blend, Waiheke Island - 2013

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

This wine enjoys extended élevage and maturing in premium French oak before beginning a minimum 3 year term resting in bottle. On release, the wine shows elegance, complexity and firm yet supple tannins – the hallmarks of its longevity – and will continue to reward cellaring.

A deeply concentrated nose of black currant and dark plum intertwine with notes of chocolate mocha, toasty cedar, mint and clove spice.

On the palate the concentration continues with layers of dark fruit, mocha, savoury oak toast and Christmas spice. This rich wine is full bodied and beautifully balanced with fresh acidity and fine grained tannin leaving long lingering flavours after every sip.

“A cabernet sauvignon-dominant blend with merlot and cabernet franc. Dense, elegant and impressive wine from a stellar Waiheke vintage, with an intriguing mix of dried berry fruits, spices, savoury and oak characters. A suave, complex wine with serious cellaring potential”
