Food Pairings for Te Mata Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Hawkes Bay Cabernet/Merlot Woodthorpe
Te Mata Estate Woodthorpe Merlot/Cabernets ‘09 has a dark ruby colour with aromas of ripe blackberry, blueberry, cedar and spiced fruitcake. The palate is rounded and generous, with lovely fruit richness supported by ripe powdery tannins, giving structure and length to the long finish. Te Mata Estate Woodthorpe Merlot/Cabernets ‘09 is a blend of 46% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11% Petit Verdot. It is a wonderful accompaniment to savoury red meats dishes and hard white cheeses, and will continue to evolve in bottle for 3-6 years from harvest.
