Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 2011

Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 750ml 2011       
Sku: 1754032

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

The fruit for Te Kahu is grown in the Hawkes Bay Gimblett Gravels Vineyard, which has one of the warmest, driest, most sundrenched climates in New Zealand. Stony gravel in the soil forces the vines to fight for water, giving the grapes a particular vibrancy. Fruit is hand harvested and destemmed before undergoing fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is matured in oak barriques before bottling.

Tasting notes
Blackberry, cinnamon, and minerals mesh for an intense and complex aroma and flavor profile. Layers of fine tannin lend tension to the opulent fruit flavors and provide the framework for the long and intense finish.

 Wine Spectator 87 points (Jun 15 2013)
Offers a fresh band of cherry and currant flavors, with notes of black tea, spice, tobacco and pencil shavings. The tannins clamp down on the finish, giving this a firm edge. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2020. 1,800 cases imported.-MW
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Jan 2015)
Blended of 69% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 9% Malbec, the 2011 Te Kahu Vineyard Proprietary Red displays a deep purple-black color and nose of fresh black currants, blackberries and black cherries with hints of violets, cigar boxes and dried Provence herbs. Medium bodied, it is just a little lean on fruit concentration in the mouth, nonetheless offering fresh, youthful black and red berry flavors and complimentary herbal accents structured with well-balanced chewy tannins and just enough acidity, finishing just a tad abruptly.

Food pairing
Terrific paired with red meat dishes.
