This Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a wine that draws on Te Awa’s renowned history of growing and producing fine Bordeaux style blends. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with wine grown from the oldest Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines on the Estate; an average vine age of 25 years. With the Estate straddling the edge of the Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa Triangle sub-regions, there are a diverse range of soil types on the Te Awa vineyard. The sections of the vineyard used for this wine are all on the Gimblett Gravels side of the Estate where the soil is made up of free draining river gravels interspersed with a little sand and silt.
