The flagship wine of the estate: Te Motu is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, hand-harvested from low-yielding vines.
Fresh flavours of black currant, red currant and plum are evident in the intense bouquet and abound on a lighter than usual palate but has surprising length power.

Early and excellent flowering and fruit set was followed by cool conditions over a long ripening season producing unusually powerful flavour development for an elegantly lean body and balanced acidity.
