Cabernet Merlot Awatea, Te Mata 2014
The 2014 Cabernet Merlot Awatea was a finished blend, just needing to be fined and bottled in January 2016. Deep garnet-purple colored, it has a very spicy, toasty, pencil shavings and plums laced nose. Ripe, plump, rounded and with generous fruit in the mouth, it delivers a firm backbone of ripe tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with great persistence.
