Seasonal Reds 3 Pack

What's in the pack?
1. Seasonal 2019 Marlborough Lagrein
Dense ruby in colour, it displays bright Damson plum, wild cherry and liquorice characters. A juicy, round mid-palate is densely packed with fresh boysenberry and dark chocolate flavours.
Hints of tobacco, vanilla and a mineral edge dance around firm acidity and pronounced tannins. Full bodied, but not heavy, Lagrein delivers straight-up, fruit-forward pleasure underneath it’s dark, tough exterior. Try it slightly chilled.
2. Seasonal 2019 Hawke's Bay Malbec Merlot
Standing to attention, the dark, robust stature of Malbec is ummistaken in the glass. However, upon tasting, it reveals a warm, inviting side, aided by the round juiciness of ripe Merlot. Cassis, cherries and dark plum can be found on the nose with a touch of cedar. A big, mouth-filling palate is loaded with forest fruit sweetness framed by cocoa dusted tennins with sprinklings of vanilla bean, coffee and spice. Powerful and concentrated, this is a blend substance and style, with Malbec taking all the limelight it deserves.
3. Seasonal 2019 Hawke's Bay Syrah
Bitter Cacao and Juniper highlights offset the sweet fruit characters which are also lifted by natural acidity. We try to keep our eager hands off when making Syrah, much like Pinot Noir, and allow the fruit expression to shine. A very small percentage of whole bunch fruit is used in the ferment where the stems add tannin and savouriness.
