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.
