Mouton Cadet Red expresses all the richness and diversity of one of the world's foremost winegrowing areas.
Deep ruby garnet in color, with lifted aromas of dark cherry and berry fruit on the nose, this precisely delineated, medium-bodied wine is marked by generous flavors of cherry and currant. The classic Central Otago dark cherry and spice character is accented by soft, rounded tannins and fine acidity, with a note of subtle new oak on the finish. Delicious now, with the potential to age for an additional 1 to 2 years.
The 2009 Chardonnay Unfiltered flows from the glass with melon, apricots, acacia and subtle French oak. It is a pretty, mid-weight, understated wine to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
