Professional Wine Reviews for Te Mata Estates Cab/Merlot Awatea Red Blend 2013

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2013 Cabernet Merlot Awatea displays a deep garnet-purple color and plummy nose with plenty of baking spice and gingerbread notes plus suggestions of pencil shavings, pepper and chocolate box. Medium-bodied, youthful, tightly-knit and with plenty of fresh, pure black fruit, it has a solid backbone of chewy tannins and long finish.

Winery Te Mata Estates

Region: Hawkes Bay

The beautiful region of Hawkes Bay in northern New Zealand is home to many of the country's oldest wineries, and is the birthplace of New Zealand's now enormous and important wine industry. Since the 1850s, Hawkes Bay has proven to be one of the country's most successful and widely renowned wine regions, with turnover increasing each year, and with its excellent quality, characterful and flavorful wines finding new fans all the time. The region is widely regarded as being the sunniest in New Zealand, and has a fantastic climate for viticulture. Indeed, the moderate humidity, low rainfall and blazing sunshine help the grapes which grow there flourish to full ripeness, and allow the resulting wine to be packed full of flavor and the finest features of the terroir.

Country: New Zealand

When it comes to New World wines, few countries can compete with Europe quite as well as New Zealand, where modern techniques and technologies are allowing wineries to get the very best results from the wide range of imported grape varieties which flourish there. The warm, sunny climate coupled with brisk oceanic winds and remarkably fertile volcanic soils produce grapes of exceptional quality, and New Zealand wines are notable for their ability to carry the terroir they are grown on into the bottle. Whilst the Sauvignon Blanc wines are probably the most widely exported and popular to come out of new Zealand, fantastic results have been produced from the Bordeaux style wines made in the Auckland region, and the Pinot Noir wines of Central Otago. These Pinot Noir wines are far more fleshy than their Burgundy counterparts, and are probably best enjoyed when young, and bursting with the fruit flavors they carry so well.
