Such sweet and rich aromas! The palate is concentrated and full with layers of warm plum and berry fruit flavours. New Zealand Merlot expresses smoothness and richness of ripe fruit thanks to the warm Mediterranean climates of Hawkes Bay in the country’s North Island. Our Merlot is made in a soft and approachable style and suits a broad range of food types including leaner meats and savoury dishes, especially casseroles.

Winemaking Notes

These Merlot grapes are from a selection of vineyards in Hawke’s Bay – predominantly on the Redmetal soils of the Ngatarawa Triangle. Ideal ripening conditions and settled weather during harvest saw fruit picked at optimum condition. All fruit was machine harvested for delivery to the winery.

The grapes were crushed to open-top tanks and standard fermenters and inoculated with cultured yeasts selected to enhance varietal expression. During active fermentation caps were mixed three times daily with an average of 14 days total maceration on skins. The individual parcels were drained to a mixture of barrels and tank and matured for nine months before final blending.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Kim Crawford Wines started out in a small Auckland cottage in New Zealand.

Since launch in 1996, the label has gained critical acclaim around the globe. Being big was never our aim. Being the best has been.

Pouring a glass of Kim Crawford Wine promises great times with friends; it often heralds a spirited lunch or lively evening. It conveys confidence in a stylish, stimulating environment.

We do things unconventionally, take risks, start things, welcome different. Screw caps keep wine fresher than corks. So we started championing them. We decided the world needed a clean, top quality, fruit driven Chardonnay devoid of the heavy oak. So we started making one.

"Indeed, when we first started Kim Crawford, we didn't even have a vineyard or winery. Just an idea and a lot of energy."
