Wine of the Week AU

Craggy Range Te Kahu Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Malbec 2015, Hawkes Bay, AUD $34

It is the structure of this wine that sets it apart from so many others. Medium-bodied with a fine tannin frame that channels the flavours through your mouth. The fruit is dark and refined with subtle herbaceous accents. Sourced from the Gimblett Gravels vineyard. Ultimately satisfying and exceptional value. (Screwcap)
