Alluviale 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Alluviale wines come from carefully selected Hawke’s Bay vineyards that lie along the ancient riverbeds of the Ngaruroro River. Drawing inspiration from classical and contemporary Bordeaux, the wines combine vibrant fruit character with elegance, restraint, complexity and texture. The Alluviale is one of the best quality NZ Merlot, featuring lifted aromas of red fruits, dark chocolate, floral and savoury notes. It has a complex palate of cassis, prune and red berries, spicy oak and velvety tannins. It is excellent with full-flavoured meals, especially red meats, pastas and game.

There has been a string of good wines released under this relatively new label but this is one of the best. Quite intense yet elegant wine with ripe berry flavours supported by classy oak. Attractive sweet fruit is gently restrained by firm, fine tan... Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine. A Proprietary Blend wine from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. 2008 Alluviale Red Wine 750ml
