Discovery Point ‘The Gravels Selection’ Hawke’s Bay Merlot/Malbec 2009

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-Sep-2011
60% Merlot and 40% Malbec fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 15 months in 20% new French oak. Almost impenetrable black-hued ruby-red, this has an elegant and fine bouquet of spicy black plums and violets, and a sleek, fine-grained, medium-weighted palate showing flavours of dark plum jam, spices and earthy black fruits. The mouthfeel is very smooth and silky, with good acid freshness and clean, but lush finish. This will develop well over the next 5-6 years.  Sep 2011
