Leftfield Has Hatched Its Latest Release

They say life’s too short to blend in, but sometimes being part of a sextet is the best way to stand out.

Like a DJ on the decks at a drum and bass gig, Leftfield is mixing things up with its latest release. The Hatchling combines six different grapes into one perfectly crafted creation.

Mixing merlot, tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, syrah and grenache grapes might sound like a mouthful (and it is) but the silky rich result will have guests wondering why they ever thought single varietals or basic blends were the safest choice.

Hailing from Hawke’s Bay, The Hatchling gives bottles from Bordeaux (the world’s blending benchmark) a run for their money. With aromas of vanilla, spice and all things nice, it’s packed full of generous flavour and creative spirit.

Perfect alongside a luscious leg of Kiwi lamb or rad beef ragu, or imbibed on its own with conversation – and maybe a side of chippies.
