Te Kahu means ‘The Cloak’ in Te Reo Maori and refers to the mist that envelops our giants winery in the Tuki Tuki Valley.
Legend has it that this mist was used to protect a mythical Maori maiden from the sun as she visited her lover Te Mata.
Vibrant deep garnet colour. Enticing aromas of dark plums and cassis meld with those of nutmeg, tobacco and sandalwood in a classically composed nose. The palate is rich and yet quietly composed, with layers of flavour and tannin linked by fine acidity and the refined dusty tannins of the gravels. Finishes dry and long.
