We had to go out of our way to find the best place to grow Merlot. In the Hawke’s Bay we discovered perfection. New Zealand’s warmest grape growing region. From its abundant, clear sunlight and ancient soils comes a Merlot that excites the senses with its fragrance, softness and elegant fruit intensity.
Aged in French oak barriques to impart complexity, the heroes in our Oyster Bay Merlot are always freshness of ripe fruit, spice and soft tannins on the palate. A wonderful Merlot perfectly crafted to accompany any special moment.
Bright cherry aromas and rich plum with subtle spice and a soft lingering texture.
