Frederic Ardouin, formerly winemaker at Chateau Latour and today manager and winemaker at Chateau Du Tertre and Chateau Giscours in Margaux and Caiarossa in Tuscany, stayed with us at Puriri Hills last week. He was most impressed with barrel tastings of our cabernet sauvignon and merlot and suggested a Left Bank blend for Puriri Hills . . . interesting idea. We will look at this!
