The Oddbins Take

Waiheke Island, off the coast of Auckland, has some of New Zealand’s most northerly wineries. You’d think that would make it a tad too tropical for Bordeaux-inspired winemaking, being flanked by the Southern Ocean, the South Pacific and the Tasmanian Sea, it is breezy to say the least.


In the case of this Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, which is vinified in 25 separate batches under the expert watch of winemaker Duncan McTavish, this unique climate has resulted in a beautiful wine with lifted aromas of crushed red berries and darker cassis, with hints of coffee, liquorice, clove, Mediterranean herbs and cedar.
