Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot
Kiwi reds are gaining amazing credibility in the wine world and thanks to Villa Maria being able to draw on fruit from regions all over NZ they are able to make this Merlot from Hawkes Bay. Forget the doomsayers who say that Merlot can’t be made well in the New World because this disproves the theory. This easy drinking wine has a varietal nose of plum and berries with some gentle oak, before a plush palate with soft and generous tannins. An excellent food wine, it goes well with red meat, pasta dishes even pizza.
njoy from release until around 2014.
