Stonecroft Ruhanui Merlot Cabernet-Wine-Wineseeker

Stonecroft Ruhanui Merlot Cabernet

Another brilliant Hawkes Bay Bordeaux blend from Stonecroft

2014 was a great season, a little unfairly overshadowed by the more heralded 2013 wines. Nevertheless, there was good flowering, fruit set and an excellent ripening period. Bordeaux blends are looking particularly ripe and show excellent ageing potential. 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Ruhanui is wild fermented, then aged in 25% new French oak for 18 months, to give a deep, concentrated wine drinking well now but showing great promise for the future. Big fruit character up front is supported by ripe tannins, and truffle, leather and tobacco notes. Delicious.
