Get to know: Hans Herzog, "Spirit of Marlborough" Merlot Cabernet

Tasting Note

An outstanding Bordeaux-style blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon with a purity of fruit that few can compete with. Fermented with wild yeasts and matured in partly new French oak barriques for 30 months, and then a for further 3 years before release. The result is so intense, the fruit seems to engulf you. Ripe but not overblown on the nose, all damson blackberry. The palate is powerful but beautifully balanced, with juicy acidity and fine tannins tempering the glossy black fruit. Dark, pure and overwhelming in its purity. Remarkably balanced - juicy acidity with fine-grained tannin are persistent and abundant making for a mouth watering length and freshness. Expansive, heady and rich, an elegant blockbuster that warrants bottle age.

Pair with steak, lamb and strong hard cheeses, such as Gruyere.
