This is a rich, Hawkes Bay Merlot with a cherry hue. The bouquet is reminiscent of sandlewood and fine herbs with excellent oak and fruit integration. The palate has rich intensity with a fine silky tannin finish. Established in 1851 by the French Marist religious order, Mission Estate Winery is New Zealands oldest winemaker.
