Leveret Reserve Hawke’s Bay Merlot Cabernet 2016

$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

Enticing aromas of dark forest berries, coffee and bramble with a herbal lift. The palate shows a seamless balance of fruit weight and tannins. The lengthy finish has notes of chocolate and leather. This wine is drinking well now but will reward cellaring for up to eight years.

Wine Review

Winestate

“Still youthful, the 2016 vintage was matured for two years in French oak casks (20 per cent new). A deeply coloured, mouthfilling red, it has fresh, concentrated blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, finely structured and sustained. Best drinking 2022+”

Beautiful with wild game or pork ribs

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 without filtration in July 2020.
