Ripe red

te-moto-kokoroTe Motu Kokoro 2013, Waiheke, NZD $75

A merlot-dominant blend with cabernet sauvignon, franc, malbec and syrah. Concentrated, flavoursome red with rich plum, berry, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours. A ripe wine with appealing sweet fruit that’s perfectly balanced by soft tannins. Good now but should develop well. (Diam)
