96/100 – Bob Campbell MW

“Cabernet sauvignon dominant with merlot and cabernet franc. A wine that has been built to last with dense fruit threaded with ripe tannins balanced by a core of sweet berry fruit flavours. A Christmas cake-like medley of concentrated fruits and spices.” – Bob Campbell MW

“A polished and balanced red with pretty sensibility and freshness. Medium body, creamy-textured tannins and a fresh finish. All about drinkability. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

Tasting Note: The flagship wine of our Waiheke Island vineyard, Te Motu is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with Merlot and Franc, hand harvested from low-yielding vines. The wine enjoys extended élevage and maturing in premium French oak before beginning a minimum 3 year term resting in bottle. On release, the wine shows elegance, complexity and firm yet supple tannins – the hallmarks of its longevity – and will continue to reward cellaring.
