Big Bunch Hawke’s Bay 2018 Pinot Gris and 2014 Merlot


The Big Bunch wines are made by Rod McDonald and his Te Awanga Estate team, but the brand is a distinctly separate entity in the marketplace. Rod McDonald describes the brand as a "generous representation of Hawke’s Bay varietal wines” with a "big bunch of aromatics and flavours”. The Big Bunch wines were initially styled by John Kemble, who established Kemblefield in 1993, and after a hiatus, joined up with Rod McDonald to re-establish his wine involvement. John is somewhat larger than life and lots of fun, and the wines are representative of his personality. Though John is now in the food industry, the Big Bunch wine style is continued by Rod.
