Leveret Reserve Hawke’s Bay Merlot Cabernet 2020

$29.99$170.94

The Leveret brand is a descendant of the award-winning Coniglio range. The word “leveret” means young hare, three of which can be found dancing on the bottle’s label. The ears of the hares connect creating a triangular symbol that was used by the tin merchants of Devon, traders on the Silk Road.

With it’s own sense of history, and coming from an up-standing family, we’re excited to present a premium and reserve option for the Leveret brand.

Clear

This deeply coloured wine displays brooding dark fruit aromas with subtle toasted oak character. The palate is impressively fresh and vibrant with flavours of forest fruit supported by finely balanced tannin and length.

    Vineyards and Winemaking

    This wine is entirely from grapes grown in our Tantallon Vineyard in Hawke's Bay.

    The grapes for this wine were harvested and transported to our Riverview winery. The fruit was gently crushed into open top fermenters and inoculated for fermentation. Caps management was by pumping over. Following fermentation and a short period of extended maceration, the wine was transferred to barrel for approximately 18 months maturation. The wine was then racked out of barrel and transferred to our Katikati winery for finishing and bottling in November 2021.

    This wine is drinking well now but will reward cellaring for up to eight years.

    Composition: 80.5% Merlot, 19.5% Cabernet Sauvignon
