Craggy Range Merlot Gimblett Gravels Vineyard Hawke’s Bay 2011
This merlot with a dash of malbec in the blend shows unusual dimension and complexity for the 2011 vintage. Leafy notes give an appetising edge to cherry and berry fruit, adding up to excellent varietal personality. The palate is rich and fleshy with measured tannins. Try it with pot-roasted rabbit and sage.
