2013 Crossroads Milestone Series Merlot

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Hailing from Hawkes Bay, this is quite a rich, fuller style of Merlot that shows lots of ripe plums and subtle florals, with whiffs of toasty oak and a sprinkle of dried herbs. The palate is rich, fleshy and fine, with a nice juicy core of dark fruits and plums, fine and slightly drying tannins, and a decent, smooth finish. Great with some spare ribs!

Winemaker's Notes

The Milestone Series celebrates our dedication from the vineyard to the winery – creating benchmark wines from the Hawke's Bay region.

A very aromatic Merlot with fresh fruit notes of blackcurrant and plum supported by subtle toasty oak. Soft supple tannins on the palate lead to a rich lingering finish.

Food pairing suggestions: Lamb chops with a side of mashed potatoes.

Alc/vol: 14.0%
