A rich Hawke’s Bay heritage on the land, together with leading wine technology and the top-flight winemaking skills of Rod McDonald ensure that the distinction of Ka Tahi wines endorses their “Number One” appellation.
The Sauvignon Blanc has been drawn from Marlborough to compliment the stable of Hawkes Bay fine wines. The wine produces lively fruit characteristics with a wonderful bouquet. The flavour is intense with notes of citrus, gooseberry and passionfruit, and a crisp refreshing finish.
Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay has gained great acclaim and this wine is in character with the authentic Hawkes Bay style. Showing the classic ripe peach and citrus flavours the rich palate is enhanced with finely balanced spicy oak.
Pinot Gris is a rising star from Hawkes Bay. The Ka Tahi Pinot Gris presents a pear drop flavour with a nice balance of honeysuckle and spice. Underlying tropical notes and generous mouth feel make this an enjoyable wine for any occasion.
Hawke’s Bay is New Zealand’s premier growing area for reds. The Merlot grapes predominant in the Ka Tahi Merlot Malbec have been grown in the warm coastal Te Awanga region. Presenting a rich red colour with fine tannins and typical spicy plum flavours this wine will benefit from bottle age through increased complexity and depth.
