Lake Road 2013 East Coast and Hawke’s Bay Merlots

18-Oct-2013
Growers based in Gisborne since 1975, Lake Road Wines began releasing its own wines from the 2008 vintage made by contracted winemakers from fruit from their own vineyards as well as fruit purchased from around the country. The company has a strong export focus in the value sector. I’ve reviewed white wines over the last two years and here I assess Merlot wines from ‘East Coast’ and Hawke’s Bay fruit from the highly-regarded 2013 vintage. They are very primary in expression but show good ripeness. They will need several months in bottle to show their proper character. www.lakeroadwines.co.nz
