Cabernet & Merlot “Lyndor”

We can produce exceptional Bordeaux style wines when we are fortunate enough to have the long summer months on our side needed for the Cabernet & Merlot Varieties.

Cabernet, Merlot Lyndor.

Situated in the Eastern hills of Gladstone on a north facing clay lime slope.  The vines here are  amongst the oldest Cabernet vines in the Wairarapa planted in the early 1980’s. The vineyard produces a unique style, always intensely coloured with the classic flavours of blackcurrant, cedar, and herbs, with a smokey nuance and earthy tannins.
