Burnfoot Merlot 2014
Varietal: 100% Merlot
Region: Hawke's Bay
Tasting Notes: The 'Burnfoot' Vineyard is in the Tuki Tuki Valley on the northern side of the Tuki Tuki River to Te Mata Peak. The nose is rich in cigar box, plum and spice. These character carry through onto the palate, which exhibits good length and depth of flavour. Very much in the tradition established by the previous vintage, the 2014 Burnfoot Merlot has an integrated-balanced palate which makes it approachable and enjoyable now, and it won't be challenged by age.
Cellaring: Drinking now and will age well for 8 to 10 years.
Food Pairing: An ideal pairing with stuffed lamb shoulder and seasonal vegetables.
