“A merlot-dominant blend with cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Moderately dense red with blackberry, blackcurrant/cassis and raspberry fruit flavours together with wood smoke and mixed spice flavours. Good cellaring potential.” – Bob Campbell MW

“A fresh and vivid red with redcurrant, hibiscus and lemon-rind character. Medium body. Fine tannins. Bright finish. Juicy. Merlot with cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

Tasting Note: Named for the head of Te Motu’s founding family, Terry Dunleavy, Kokoro means ‘the patriarch’ in Maori and ‘the heart of things’ in Japanese. A Merlot dominant blend with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Syrah, hand-harvested from low-yielding vines, Kokoro is made in a more forward style to accentuate fruit ripeness and texture, this wine can be enjoyed in its youth but has the pedigree to improve for years to come. Kokoro is released 20 months after vintage.
