Te Awa Red Blend Gimblett Gravels Boundary 2006

Member Review by winehiker:

Medium garnet-colored Bordeaux blend, strong earthiness on nose, but with mild elusive fruit aromas and slight fragrance of wood and spice. Moderate balance aspects, with slight tartness, agreeable bitterness. Medium body, good mouthfeel, but heavily lacking in fruit flavor; very short finish.

Our philosophy is to achieve balanced wines, reflecting the grapes from which they are made and having the individuality of our vineyard site. Embracing the time proven traditions of the worlds great winemakers, we harvest and vinify the different parcels of our vineyard separately, which gives us small variations in flavour and texture and thus more options when it comes to blending. We aim for a synergistic effect, where the wine will be better than the sum of the individual parts. Even in our single variety wines we blend different components from different parts of the vineyard to achieve the most complete and balanced wine. Once blended, the components marry and age together, evolving towards harmony as one wine - the best possible expression of our vineyards unique character. We see ourselves as working with nature so that our wines are the unification of all the elements; our soil, cultivars, climate, and people. Read less

This top-level red is more complex than the other Te Awa wines, blending tobacco and black olive aromas with savory flavors of earth and leather. There?s also a core of black cherries, a creamy texture and an elegant finish. Drink or hold 2?3 years. Imported by R O Imports.
