Te Mata Awatea Cabernet Merlot 2017 is a dark inky purple colour with crimson edges. The 2018 is a warm and dry vintage displaying blackcurrant and blackberry aromas with hints of sandalwood and vanilla creme. The palate has flavours of dried herbs, dark cherry, plums, and raspberries. Classical in structure, with fine balance and length. 

The separate parcels of grapes were destemmed before a traditional warm, plunged fermentation and extended maceration on skins. The resulting wines were then run to new and seasoned French oak barrels for 16 months’ ageing. Throughout this time, they were regularly topped and racked. The separate wines were blended in January 2019, then returned to barrel for their second winter. The finished wine was then egg white fined and bottled in October 2019. The final blend is 48% cabernet sauvignon, 37% merlot, 15% cabernet franc.
