Sacred Hill

Sacred Hill Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014 12.5%
A familiar and classic bouquet of ripe sweet citrus, tree and tropical fruits laced with a grassy herbaceous edge and soft spice layer. On the palate - juicy, lush and crisp with plenty acidity to contrast the ripe flavors of green apple, grapefruit and mango. A balanced wine with medium length and complexity in a crowd pleasing style. Always well made from this producer.

Sacred Hill Hawke's Bay Merlot Cabernet 2013 13.5%
A noticeable mix of ripe red fruit aromas alongside some gentle toasty oak present a bouquet with some charm and promise. On the palate - dry, fruity and youthful with moderate dusty tannins and medium+ acidity; plenty of dark red fruit flavors and light toasty oak attributes. A wine that will easily pair with red meat or chicken dishes that have a light peppercorn and cream sauce with a few olives thrown.
