Charismatic founder Tim Turvey was not to be discouraged when told the site at Te Awanga in Hawkes Bay was too cold to grow grapes. He went ahead and planted anyway, and 25 years on, we're glad he did.
Happy to plant a wide range of grape varieties, and to experiment with techniques in the winery, Clearview make wines worth hunting down.
A superb entry level merlot blend from lauded producer Clearview Estate.
Wonderfully smooth, generous and warm with a decent helping of plum and berry fruit flavours. Dark, rich aromas of plum & dark fruits finish with a rich, round palate containing fine grained tannins.
