Juicy, fresh black plum with a hint of vanilla, bright red currants and alluring spice. We had to go out of our way to find the perfect place to grow Merlot. In the Hawke’s Bay we discovered perfection. From its abundant clear sunlight and ancient gravel soils, comes a Merlot that excites the senses with its fragrance, softness and elegant fruit intensity. The heroes in our Oyster Bay Merlot are always freshness of ripe fruit, spice, and soft tannins on the palate, offering a wonderful Merlot perfectly crafted to accompany any special moment.
