Cypress Hawke’s Bay Merlot 2008

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 16-Mar-2011
An elegant and freshly fruited, medium-bodied red that will be good to serve with all pizza, pasta and red meat dishes over the next 3-5 years. Deepish ruby-red with a youthful appearance, this has vibrant red plum and berry aromas with notes of fresh herbs and some earth. Medium-full bodied at 13.5% alc., this has juicy red fruit flavours on the palate with good acidity and moderate extraction. The wine finished with subtle earth notes and curranty flavours. The wine was aged 5 months in barrel.   Mar 2011
