Main Divide Merlot Cabernet is an exquisite New Zealand wine, crafted in the charming Canterbury region. It exhibits a comprehensive array of flavours, comprising luscious, ripe fruits blended flawlessly with hints of spice and earthy tones. Regaling the nose with an invigorating fusion of berry scents, it caresses the palate with waves of plum, blackcurrant and a touch of oak, all balanced impeccably with soft tannins. It’s matured in French oak barrels, gifting it a subtle, smoky finish. With its robust structure and lasting finish, Main Divide Merlot Cabernet is a splendid companion to roasted meats and hard cheeses.
Its colour is deep ruby, with tantalising dark fruit aromas of blackberry, cherry and plum. Intertwined with this are hints of chocolate, liquorice and vanilla, along with savoury notes of wood smoke and spice. The mouthfeel is silky and succulent, with ripe tannins that provide balance and structure. A long hot summer has delivered a beautifully crafted, harmonious wine, displaying both power and finesse.
