Stratum 2009 Merlot Cabernet
The Stratum 2009 Merlot Cabernet is a blend of Gisborne Merlot and Hawkes Bay Cabernet Sauvignon. In selecting these parcels of wine particular attention was given to blending together wines that reflect the true essence of Merlot and Cabernet.
The resulting wine is deeply scented and fragrant with hints of dark fruits supported by oak. The palate is rich and full with a soft, round and persistent finish.
A wine to be enjoyed with most red meats
