In stock

Blend: 61% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc.

Deep red with purple highlights. Complex, lifted aromas of warm berry, floral, savoury and spicy oak notes. The palate displays an elegance and finesse where primary fruit flavours mingle with savoury oak and are balanced by fine, lingering tannins. A youthful wine with refinement and poise, that has the balance and structure to age gracefully.

A specially selected site within the Te Awa vineyard give us the Zone 6. Each grape variety and each parcel was hand picked and fermented separately, which allowed us to maximise the vineyard’s potential in the winery. Post ferment maceration, where the new wine remains in contact with the skins was a key step in achieving balance and finesse. The average time of maceration in 2003 was 21 days. The components of Zone 6 underwent the malo-lactic fermentation in barrel. In spring, after extensive laboratory trials, blending of the various components to achieve the best possible expression of the vineyard character was carried out. The Merlot brings a supple, velvety texture to the palate, Cabernet Franc fragrance and Cabernet Sauvignon depth and structure on the finish. Zone 6 2003 spent 17 months in fine grained French oak barrels and was bottled in October 2004.
