Ataahua Waipara Merlot (2019)

The youthful 2019 vintage (4*) is an estate-grown, North Canterbury red, hand-picked and matured for over a year in seasoned oak barrels. Full-coloured, it is fragrant and mouthfilling, with strong berry, plum, spice and herb flavours, savoury notes adding complexity and gentle tannins. Best drinking mid-2022+.
