The Herzog family have lived in Switzerland's Rhine Valley for generations - first mentioned in the church almanac of 1482, they have long been farmers tending their vineyards. Despite their huge success in Switzerland, Hans sought the ideal place to produce great Bordeaux-style wines not possible to cultivate in their homeland's cool climate. Their boutique estate and restaurant was founded in 1994 and is now widely regarded as one of the best in New Zealand. This Bordeaux blend shows off with aromas of juicy dark plums, black fruit and berries. Subtle spices, herbs and dark chocolate add to the complexity. Concentration and opulence aplenty followed by a sensuous, lingering long finish. Enjoy as you would a Grand Cru Pomerol - with many years of bottle ageing.
