Our handcrafted Delta Merlot is a rich and flavoursome Merlot from Hawke’s Bay, showing flavours of boysenberry, rich plums and cocoa powder.
Selected from low-cropping vineyards in the internationally recognised Hawke's Bay winegrowing region, situated on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. Warm days, cooler nights with gravel rich soils lead to small, tight berries full of bold and juicy flavours with a rich and vibrant colour.
Carefully fermented and aged for nine months in a combination of tanks and seasoned French oak barriques, Heather then carefully selected the most interesting barrels prior to final blending and bottling.
