Kingsley Estate Gimblett Road Merlot

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
The brilliant 1998 vintage was grown organically in Gimblett Road, Hawke's Bay, and matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (two-thirds new). Densely coloured, it's a fragrant, concentrated wine, warm and deep, with notably rich blackcurrant and spice flavours and a lovely suppleness of texture. At 12.5 per cent, it's one of the less alcoholic wines of the vintage (which enhances its drinkability), but there's absolutely no shortage of ripeness or intensity. It should mature splendidly.
