Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The wine is deep red with a purple hue.

Aroma

The wine has bright fruit aromas of blueberry and plum with underlying savoury character of toast, coffee, vanilla.

Palate

On the palate this wine is full bodied with a generousity and richness of chocolate and caramel. The structure of this wine is relatively svelte with supple tannins and a harmonious acidity.

Food Matching

Whilst this wine has the supple structure to be enjoyed on its own, more pleasure can be gained by partnering with rich raises and pot roasts.

Cellaring

Enjoy this wine over the next three to five years.

As a single estate winery, Te Awa cherish their rich diversity that the unique terroir of Te Awa provides. Their philosophy is to achieve balanced wines, reflecting the grapes from which they are made and having the individuality of our vineyard site. Embracing the time proven traditions of the worlds great winemakers, they harvest and vinify the different parcels of our vineyard separately, which gives us small variations in flavour and texture and thus more options when it comes to blending.

Their aim is for a synergistic effect, where the wine will be better than the sum of the individual parts. Once blended, the components marry and age together, evolving towards harmony as one wine - the best possible expression of their vineyards unique character.
