Mt Erin Merlot
Mt Erin is our latest 'find' in the Hawkes Bay in the coveted Bridge Pa Triangle. This sub-region of 2,000 hectares to the South of the Gimblett Gravels boasts the largest concentration of vineyards in Hawkes Bay, with red-metal alluvial soils with underlying pumice from the Taupo volcanic eruptions- and happens to be excellent for growing Merlot.
Mt Erin is created by more widely known Abbey Cellars, a family winery with a sleek cellar door inspired by gothic cathedrals and abbeys of years gone by. The wines are great sippers, and the Mt Erin range in particular meets the right price point for mid-week wine.
Made from 100% Merlot from a single vineyard in Bridge Pa is designed for immediate pleasurable consumption.
Deep magenta in colour, with aromas of raspberry coulis, dark chocolate, and roasted plums. Showing plenty of Merlot varietal character, medium bodied and fruity, featuring black doris plums, anise, blackberries and just a hint of char. Superb for the price.
