The Bone Line iridium
Regular price $55.00
A blend of cabernet franc, merlot and cabernet sauvignon from Waipara Vallery winery The Bone Line.
Luxurious dark magenta in colour which shimmers mauve and scarlet. Purple pastille and violets leap from the glass and fill the surrounding air. Dried herb, dry roasted vegetable and graphite provide subtleties while orange chocolate and wood spice ground the nose. Sweet red and purple fruits saturate the palate at first, surrounding a warm cedar heart — all balanced by juicy acidity and fine powdery tannins. The finish has a dry mineral bite that entices you back for more.
About The Bone Line
The Bone Line is named in reference to the nearby K-T boundary line that is evidence of the global catastrophe of an asteroid impact on the earth and the end of the Mesozoic Era and the extinction of the dinosaurs. Each of the wines’ labels features fossils discovered in the Waipara River dating back as far as 65 million years. The labels bear a tangible connection with the land on which the fruit is grown.
The vineyard’s natural amphitheatres allow a wide range of varieties to grow and ripen (considering the region and climate), creating incredibly diverse flavours. The Bone Line is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand, which provides a framework for the best viticultural practices to protect the environment while efficiently producing premium grapes. Their vineyards are in the process of organic conversion, working within the Biogro system — harvest 2021 is expected to produce the first organically certified fruit.
