Cracka Review

Now, don’t come any of that 'Sideways' rubbish of I'm not drinking #$%* Merlot! Yes you are, and here is a good place to ease yourself into it, because it's got a portion of Cab Sauv too. It's deep and full-bodied, displaying fragrant, plummy fruits on the nose with a hint of earthiness. The palate is powerful yet approachable with a dark-berried centre, fine, mellow tannins, and a dry, fruity finish with a savoury twist. It's great, lazy drinking you don't have to think too much about.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: A deep ruby red colour.

Aromatics: Lovely plum, redcurrant and cedar notes on the nose, plus an intriguing hint of tea.

Palate: Dense black fruit flavours with blackcurrant and blackberry a touch of cedar and a good tannic structure.

Alc/vol: 13.0%

2014 Stonecroft Wines Ruhanui Hawke's Bay Merlot Cabernet

Expert Reviews

Bob Campbell MW (2014 Vintage) says
Dense, rich and potentially complex red from a very good Hawke's Bay vintage. Dark berry, plum, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, pepper, spice and nutty oak flavours. I love the wine's almost chewy texture. A serious red.
