LE17 Hawke’s Bay Merlot

January 16, 2018

We are very fortunate to be offering the New Zealand Hawke’s Bay Merlot as the February wine in the LE17 Collection.

Hawke’s Bay’s temperate climate and plentiful sunshine make the region ideal for fruit-growing with grape vines first planted in 1851.
Hawke’s Bay has since earned itself an international reputation for producing high quality Cabernet & Merlot blends, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and an impressive array of aromatic white wines.

Our LE17 Hawke’s Bay Merlot features ripe fruit with dark, oaky spice and soft tannins with hints of mocha and licorice. It will pair well with any beef dish and of course lamb!

LE17 Hawke’s Bay Merlot arrives later this month. For those of you who didn’t pre-order this fabulous wine- call you favourite Wine Sense location and ask them to reserve one for you before they are gone!

The LE17 Pre-Order Deadline is Near!

November 30, 2017

This year’s LE17 collection is looking like a great line up. One of the unique things about this year collection is that all 5 wines are from different countries. Usually you will see at least two wines from the same country. This year we’re offering wines from Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Spain and Italy!

5 wines from 5 countries that will give you a diverse collection in your wine rack that will have you prepared for any occasion or food pairing: A Dry and Off-Dry white and three reds that are Medium, Medium-Full and Full-Bodied!

The Pre-Order Deadline is this Saturday!

You can visit this page to see videos about each wine and video recipe that will pair with each wine!


Although we do bring in extra kits- we are well ahead of last year’s pre-order numbers so that means their will be few kits available if you don’t pre-order!

Don’t miss out- the five LE wines are always in the Top 10 Best Sellers for the year and they are only available for a month or two at max!!
