Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines. The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Roman mythology alongside Bacchus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company; to us here at Kwoff, the holy trinity. The vineyards and winery are based near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

This wine is part hand-plunged and part pumped over during fermentation to aid in colour extraction and provide tannin structure. After a period of maceration on skins, the wine is pressed off and run into oak barrels for maturation.

A classic, easy drinking wine, Sileni Cellar Selection Merlot, Hawke’s Bay has silky tannins give it a soft finish for early drinkability and the depth of fruit gives it the ability to cellar for 4-5 years. Not too heavy, not too light... just right. Enjoy with a spaghetti Bolognaise, spaghetti and meatballs, baked pasta dishes such as lasagne, bangers and mash, crispy duck pancakes, ribs or a nice juicy steak!
