Villa Maria Reserve Merlot 2018 750ML

Gold -Hawkes Bay Wine Awards 2020

The Reserve Merlot reveals a saturated deep purple colour and perfumed aromatics of red and black plum, fruitcake and floral violet notes, interwoven with roasted coffee bean and complex herb nuances. The palate is concentrated and firmly structured in its youth with fine-grained tannins enhanced by integrated oak. This wine will certainly benefit and gain additional complexity from careful cellaring over the next decade.

Smells: Lifted red fruits, a crushed herbal note, cedar and spice aromas.

Tastes: Strong Cabernet characteristics persist on the palate, blackcurrant and herbal flavours with a long linear palate. The fine grain tannins are salivating, and interwoven throughout the tight core of fruit. Decanting is recommended before serving and this wine will benefit from 3-5 years ageing.

ABV: 13.5%
