Te Rere Bordeaux Blend 2013
$60.00 inc. GST
Above Te Rere Point on Waiheke Island’s western coastline, sits Te Rere Estate which encompasses four individual vineyards covering 2.4 hectares. Under the guidance of renowned local winemaker; Luc Desbonnets, the vines are hand tended, their grapes handpicked, creating wine that naturally reflect the unique ‘terroir’.
Tasting Note: A luscious palate that unfolds with many layers of spice and dark fruit character. The oak is prominent in this young wine but well-integrated, giving the finish a pleasantly round quality. Hearty, full-bodied and truly classic in style, perhaps the most surprising thing about this wine is how it combines new world power with old world finesse – not a shade of overextracted fruit to be found here.
