Hawkes Bay Four Daughters Red 2012 >Winery Only<

A medium bodied wine full of sweet dark berry fruits. Subtle oak and soft tannins are well balanced rounding out to a smooth and lingering finish.
Winemakers Notes
An unlikely but thoroughly loveable assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Malbec from our Hawkes Bay vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec are sourced from our Gimblett Gravels and Red Metal vineyards and the Syrah comes from a small, steeply sloping site tucked into the Havelock Hills. All components were separately vinified and aged in barrel and then for a period of time in tanks before assemblage and bottling.

Tasting Notes
Colour: A beautiful deep red, with a dark core and bright, flashing rim.
Bouquet: Very Bordeaux like but with a delicious Rhonesque lift of black fruits and grilled meat along with a dash of pepper.
Palate: Not a full bodied wine, but a wine with great balance, fineness and finesse. The tannins are soft and round and there is just enough fruit sweetness to give the wine real length and focus.

Cellaring
Already approachable, but we expect this wine to cellar for a number of years.
 
Food Matches
This medium bodied, dry red wine is a perfect match for red meats and pasta dishes. Serve at room temperature.
