Main Divide North Canterbury Merlot/Cabernet (2018)

Offering good value, the 2018 vintage (4*) from Pegasus Bay was grown at Waipara and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (10 per cent new). It is a blend of Merlot (50 per cent), Cabernet Sauvignon (40 per cent) and Malbec (10 per cent). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, vibrant and supple, with strong, well-ripened plum, blackcurrant and spice flavours, showing considerable complexity, and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking mid-2021+.
