Snapper Rock Merlot Cabernet

£14.00

PRODUCER: Snapper Rock
SKU: SNAPPERMERCAB

Description

A New Zealand red wine from the Hawkes Bay region with alluvial plains, high sunshine hours and a long ripening season perfect for cool climate reds. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were hand harvested from vineyards in the rural Bridge Pa region. Fermented in small open top fermenters and then aged for 18 months in older oak barrels.

The deep, fruit driven nose brings aromas of dark cherry, ripe plum and dark cinnamon spice. The rich palate shows ripe, cherry, blackberry and hints of strawberry alongside cedar characters and warming spice. Excellent texture, fine structure and bright acidity. Try with roasted pork, chicken or vegetables, mushroom dishes, blue or hard cheeses.

New Zealand's Snapper Rock have won many international awards for their range of wines. They aim to deliver affordable, fruit-driven styles of wine that capture New Zealand’s maritime climate and unique terroir. Grapes are sourced from their vineyards in Marlborough in the north of the south island and Hawkes Bay on the east coast of the North Island, with local knowledge of young winemakers adding modern flair to their wines.
