This wine is unbelievably well balanced, with subtle tropical stone fruit in the form of apricot and peach mingling with subtle oak characters and a rich creaminess.
Intense aromas of red fruits, black cherry, peppermint and vanilla. Full bodied with warm fruits and spice, firm tannin and fresh acidity. Well structured with layers of flavour and rich, long finish.
An intense nose of rose petals, oriental spice and tropical fruit. Gently off-dry, with a round and mellow texture, balanced by a burst of acidity and a peppery note on the finish.
Ripe cherry and strawberry fruit forms the backbone of this wine, which is medium-bodied and approachable, and fresh in feel. A subtly rustic streak gives a touch of complexity and food friendliness.
Te Kahu means 'the cloak', and is the Maori name for the mist that envelops this valley. The Gimblett Gravels vineyard's unique location creates the warmest vineyard area in New Zealand.
