Arahura Clevedon Merlot Cabernet

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
The debut 1997 vintage is a blend of estate-grown, Clevedon (South Auckland) and Hawke's Bay grapes, with greater concentration and complexity and firmer structure than the straight Merlot from 1997. A blend of Merlot (71 per cent) and Cabernet Sauvignon (29 per cent), matured for a year in new and one-year-old French oak barriques, it's a deeply coloured, concentrated wine with the herbal edge of Cabernet Sauvignon, but excellent depth of cassis/plum flavour, warm and supple. It should mature well.
