This Reserve Blend is widely regarded as being amongst the finest of New Zealand's red wines.
The wine is deeply coloured with aromatics hinting at black fruits and chocolate.
The flavours are typical of Gimblett Gravel merlot blends, with fruitcake, plum, cherry, chocolate and oak spice all evident.
