Ti Point Matakana Coast Merlot/Cabernet Franc 2014

Blended Red from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 07-Dec-2015
Dark ruby-red colour with a lighter rim. This has a soft and gently voluminous Nose of savoury red berry fruits melded with aromas of dried herbs, tobacco and subtle leathery notes. The aromatics are harmoniously interwoven. Medium-bodied, the palate features a soft, rounded core that unveils light and ethereal flavours of savoury red berry and plum fruit, along with earth, dried herb and tobacco notes. The acidity is soft, and light, drying tannins emerge to carry the palate to a tight, finely concentrated finish of liquorice and dried herbs. This is a restrained Melot and Franc blend with savoury red fruit and earthy flavours, and a light, dry structure. Match with casseroles and semi-hard cheeses over the next 3-4 years. Merlot and Cabernet Franc fruit from the Matakana Coast, fermented to 14.0% alc, the wine aged 12 months in French oak barriques. 16.5+/20 Dec 2015 RRP $22.99
