Te Motu 2005


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.

Tasting Notes:

A full and voluminous nose with ripe blackberry, plum and currant aromas, harmoniously entwined with earth and savoury secondary undergrowth and dried herb nuances. Fine-grained tannins with flavours of cassis, herbs, plums and spice along with earth and game. A rich, full body with great concentration of flavours. This wine can age well into 2022+

Vintage Notes

Wet conditions at flowering produced a light fruit-set but also the soil moisture for good vigour throughout an otherwise excellent growing season which produced exceptionally ripe and clean fruit in all varieties.
