Te Awanga Estate
2015 Merlot Cabernet Franc

The grapes where gently destemmed but not crushed, regular cap management during ferment meant optimal tannin extraction. After post ferment maceration the wine aged in oak to further enhance the structure before it was blended and lightly egg white fined.

This wine displays aromas of black cherry, cassis and cigar box. The palate is full, rich and soft with flavours of plum and cedar.  Drink me now or hold off a bit for some extra kapow!

The Word.
