Te Awa Red Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay Cabernet-Merlot 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose suggests graphite, lead and mineral; hard things, yet it seems to be withholding something softer. Tightly guarded, like an ancient treasury, stacked to the ceiling with bounty. Silken oak, intoxicating vanilla spice and the ripest black currants are the gentle secrets within. The palate is twitching and muscular like a prize fighter who will soften, once some of the aggression is punched out. Guarded yet poised, at this youthful stage, and waiting for time to weave its magic, or take its course. There is sweetness here too, a gentle heart hidden. Shackled and brooding at present, of all the 2007 wines this one will reward cellaring the most.

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

Attractive wine with sweet ripe berry fruit flavours lightly seasoned with spicy oak. Supple, yet reasonably dense red that's good now but will reward ageing. Bob Campbell, MW. A Proprietary Blend wine from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. 2007 Te Awa Cabernet-Merlot 750ml

Deep purple color. Beautiful aromas of cassis and fresh herbs with a bit of roasted coffee, reminiscent of young, fresh Bordeaux. Elegant on the palate, the slightly spicy flavors are not overwrought in this medium-bodied red blend. Rather, subtle ta... Chuck Hayward.
