Villa Maria Cellar Selection Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2000 vintage offered sensational value and so does the 2002 like its predecessor the Best Buy of the Year. A blend of Merlot (80 per cent). Cabernet Sauvignon 118 per cent) and Malbec (2 per cent), grown in the Gimblett Gravels district of Hawke's Bay, it was matured for 18 months in French and American oak barriques. A rich, concentrated wine with bold, inky colour and a fragrant, opulent bouquet, it shows lovely generosity on the palate, with beautifully ripe, plummy, spicy fruit characters and fine tannins.
