Hans Herzog Spirit of Marlborough 2013 (Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Cabernet) (Organic Wine)
Marlborough, New Zealand
A blend of 40% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aroma of crème de cassis, black current, elderberries, dark chocolate and that distinguished scent when opening a Havana cigar box. Vibrant with firm tannins, refreshing acidity and structure it offers superb precision and opulence. Juicy on the palate with a huge long finish.
HANS HERZOG WINERY – Marlborough
Hans and Therese Herzog, originally from Switzerland, were looking for a new challenge when they moved to New Zealand during the mid 90s and developing a boutique wine estate was exactly that. Producing a variety of handcrafted varietals with a strong focus on low yields and non-interventional winemaking, the couple excelled within their field and Herzog is now widely acclaimed as one of the best in the country.
