Oyster Bay Merlot, Hawkes Bay 75cl
Fragrant violet, fresh blackberry and plum with soft alluring spice. Oyster Bay Merlot is about elegance and intensity of fruit. The hero is always the freshness of ripe fruit, with spice and soft tannins on the palate. The Hawke's Bay wine region is arguably the most exciting find for the cultivation of Merlot in New Zealand. Ancient alluvial soils, an abundance of pure river water for irrigation and a temperate maritime climate create the unique environment in which Merlot produces vibrant, fully ripened varietal flavours.
