Rabbit Island Merlot – Buy Merlot Cheap Online Sale New Zealand WINE BOX NZ
The 2016 Rabbit Island Merlot comes off our relatively youthful Edens Road Vineyard. This vineyard is bordered by the Wairoa River and is notable for its exceptionally stony soil structure. The bouldery free draining soil is very harsh on our vineyard equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of the Nelson sun and for ripening grapes.
The 2016 Rabbit Island Merlot is vibrant and avoursome with juicy berry notes on the nose. The palate has plum, dried herbs and nely integrated supple oak to make a wine that is smooth and approachable.
