Falconhead Hawke’s Bay Merlot Cabernet



Vintage 2016

Layered and complex, with ripe dark fruits, charry oak and dried herbs. The palate is rich and full bodied, with fine tannins.

Vintage 2016

“Ripe, youthful and fruit centric bouquet with a mix of dark berries and plums – both fresh and starting to dry-out, soft vanilla and toasty barrel scents of oak then a dry stone almost gravel earthy quality. On the palate – satin textures of integration and a core of fruit show casing flavours that reflect the nose, integrating tannins, medium acidity and firm-(ish) texture. This wine is ready to enjoy upon purchase and through 2022. Best with food as well – perhaps lean meats or Italian pasta dishes.”
