Villa Maria Private Bin Organic Merlot

$14.99

A dark crimson hue leads to a vibrant nose of red plum, boysenberry and subtle spice with cedar oak undertones. A soft and generous palate combines with silky tannins, making this an excellent food wine.

Description

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT This deeply coloured wine has flavours of black plum, fruitcake and complexing spice characters, a rich, smooth mouthfeel and a delicious finish.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS A great pairing with Mediterranean inspired cuisine, cheese and all red meats.

VINEYARD & WINEMAKING The 2013 Hawkes Bay vintage was simply superb with warm and dry (drought) conditions throughout the season moderated by cool evening temperatures, which led to fruit harvested at optimum maturity in pristine condition.
