Main Divide Merlot Cabernet 2022, North Canterbury

Blended Red from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 08-Jul-2024
Deep ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is elegantly full, with bright aromas of red berry, plum, leather, spice and tapenade. Full-bodied, aromas of red berry and plum interweaved with star anise, nutmeg, leather and tapenade. The vibrant fruit is supported by enticing acidity; fine-grained tannins enrich the palate and linger with savoury elements. This Merlot Cabernet blend is well-structured with bright fruit, tension and a savoury, moreish finish. Match with fillet mignon and steak pie over the next 5+ years. Predominantly Merlot, with a balance made up of Cabernet and a small amount of Malbec. Fermented naturally in stainless steel tanks to 13.5% alc, transferred to French oak barriques aged for 18 months, underwent MLF. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jul 2024 RRP $21.99
