Moana Park 2015 Estate Merlot Malbec and 2014 SVR Merlot

19-Jan-2017
Established in 2000, Moana Park was purchased by Dan and Kaylea Barker in 2008 after Dan had assumed the winemaking responsibilities in 2005. The company has experienced considerable growth, with the ability to access fruit from various vineyards around Hawke’ Bay. This has given Moana Park the opportunities of producing representative Hawke’s Bay blends as well as single vineyard expressions. The key vineyards for Moana Park are the Gimblett Road and Mere Road sites in the Gimblett Gravels, as well as the home Puketapu vineyard which has undergone replanting with new material. Moana Park also sources Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough. Dan has in the past been involved in a number of tangential projects, but has committed to heading the home operation, so we are bound to see further consolidation and progress at Moana Park. www.moanapark.co.nz
