Roys Hill Merlot Cabernet 2017 (12 x 750mL) Hawkes Bay, NZ

This classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet is grown and made from our Gimblett Road vineyards. Warm fermentation on skins and regular pumping over begins the colour and flavour extraction. Some maturation in older barriques is blended with the more fruit expressive tank components to make this firm and fruity easy drinking style.

Vintage Conditions

Warm, dry in December and January. Good fruit set and subsequent yields in some early varieties. February & March rainfall in particular was high and fruit ripening was slow for late ripening varieties. Our free draining soils,

disease control, vine management and selective harvesting ensured quality was not compromised.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Purple /garnet red

Aroma

Plums & spice with sweet subtle oak.

Palate

A satisfying fruit driven red blend. Black fruits, cassis and a plummy spice are married with good firm structure and gentle oak integration. Silky ripe tannin and natural acidity. Great drinking now and for a further three years.

Oak

Partial oak maturation
