Alluviale 2010 Merlot, Cabernet Franc
In this episode I get to taste Allivale’s red wine from Hawke’s Bay. Allivale 2010 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc from Gimblett Gravels and is made by up and coming winemaker David Ramonteu.
David’s father is responsible for raising the profile of the French wine region Jurancon. He’s from a long line of of winemakers and he makes Alluvial’s wines in a very traditional fashion. The wines often appear to be European in style, but the ripeness of the fruit hints that it’s a new world wine.
