Merlot Malbec Cabernet 2011
Te Mania Three Brothers is a classic blend of Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet. As well as this blend of three grape varieties, Three Brothers also owes its name to the three brothers in my family as well as the Three Brothers landmark very near where we live.
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 was hand harvested. The grapes were 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 barrels and then aged for 11 months prior to bottling.
Organic Status: Certified Organic BioGro New Zealand.
Diet: Suitable for vegetarian diets.
Acidity: 5 g/L
A nicely expressed Bordeaux blend (merlot/malbec/cabernet franc), the bouquet shows blueberry, red plum and hints of dried herb and spice notes. It's ripe and smooth on palate with bright fruit characters, finishing elegantly dry.
