A blend of fruit from several Hawkes Bay vineyards, a region considered to be New Zealand’s home for the Bordeaux varietals Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruit is taken predominantly from the renowned Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district, namely Omahu Gravels, Ngakirkiri and Twyford Gravels. The free-draining gravelly soils and warm conditions of the Gimblett Gravels encourage low yields and devigourated vines.
