Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
Dr John Gladstone has observed that both mean temperatures and sunshine hours are very close to those of Bordeaux. It is thus no surprise to find that Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominate the plantings and some very appealing and elegant Cabernet Merlot blends have been produced.
The wines are elegant, light to medium-bodied, with the melon, citrus flavours of cooler grown Chardonnay. As the vines mature it will bring increased structure and intensity to the wines.
This wine has great freshness and zingy acidity here, yet it retains its tropical flavours and rounded mouthfeel.
