?Blends of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are one of the most challenging and exciting wine styles to produce. There is a synergy between these two varieties that produces some of the most complete, complex, fragrant and satisfying styles of red wine in the world. Hawke?s Bay, along with parts of the California?s Napa Valley, was identified by the U.K?s Decanter magazine, as one of the few New World wine regions that could challenge Bordeaux in the production of such wines.?
