Te Mania Three Brothers Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc

Te Mania Three Brothers Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc

Te Mānia Three Brothers is a classic blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. There are 2 reasons for its name. As well as a blend of three grape varieties, Three Brothers also owes its name to the Three Brothers corner landmark close to the vineyard.

Nose: Blackcurrant and blackberry with some spicy, herbal and earthy notes.

Palate: Vibrant blackberry and blackcurrant fruit flavours with some subtle spicy oak and fine tannins.

Vintage: The grapes of our Three Brothers Bordeaux blend were hand harvested, crushed and fermented in small open fermenters with regular hand plunging over the ferment period. The wine was then settled in tank before being racked to French Barrique barrels and then aged for 10 months prior to bottling.

Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegetarian diet.

Analysis: Alcohol 13.5% Acidity 5.3 g/L

Youthful and immediately appealing, the inviting bouquet shows dark plum, blueberry, clove and toasted almond characters with nuances of game and mixed spice notes. The palate is succulent and rounded, and displays attractive fruit intensity and smooth texture, beautifully structured by fine tannins. A well composed Bordeaux-style made from merlot, malbec and cabernet franc. 4½ Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2017
