Premium New Zealand Merlot for export. Warm, generous flavours of plum, spice and red berries. (750ml, cork closure, 14.5%)

The Clifton Bay Estate is one of the oldest coastal vineyards in New Zealand, with grape vines grown on the site for over one hundred years. The Te Awanga sub-region enjoys a warm, extended growing season with cleansing sea breezes and stunning views of the vast Pacific Ocean.


Family owned and operated, specialising in original French Wine varieties, Clifton Bay Estate uses traditional, handmade winemaking methods wherever possible to produce exceptional wine that builds on the winemaker's reputation as one of New Zealand's leading small wine producers.

From this exceptional vintage we blended ultra-ripe parcels of Merlot in a traditional style. The flavours are warm and generous with plum, spice and red berries combining with hints of French oak from extended barrel ageing. (750ml, cork closure, 14.5% Alc/vol.)


Prices vary depending on volume of order. Consolidated pallets/containers across a variety of Clifton Bay styles are available.
