Villa Maria Cellar Selection Hawkes Bay Merlot 750ML

Once destemmed and crushed to open-top fermenters the grapes were inoculated with several strains of yeast and fermented at 30 degrees C. Post fermentation the parcels were pressed to a mixture of 2nd use Hungarian and American oak barriques for 12 months maturation. The wine was blended, egg white fined and filtered into the bottle.

This deeply coloured Merlot displays perfumed aromas of dark plum, violets and dried herbs, with complexing oak spice characters. A medium-bodied, smooth and approachable palate follows with sweet fruit, supple tannins and moreish acidity.

Alc: 14%
