Te Awanga Hawkes Bay Merlot Cabernet Franc 2013 x6
Merlot Cabernet Franc
18 months in new and used French oak.
The nose of this wine displays an aroma of currant, cassis and tobacco characters
The palate is full, rich and soft with excellent balance and structure. A wine styled for approachability but that will benefit from some bottle age.
Fruit was destemmed and crushed to open and closed fermenters where the must was fermented hot to maximize extraction of tannin, colour and flavour. The fermenting juice was on skins for an average of just under four weeks. This allowed for the full build of tannin and mouth feel before the wine was pressed and run to barrel where it was aged for 18 months in new and used French oak.
