Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot Cabernet 2012 Hawke's Bay

New Zealand

    This 'Bordeaux blend' from Hawkes Bay is friendly and approachable. It has lots of ripe berry flavours, and soft tannins making it very easy to drink.

  • Flavours

    Blackcurrant, Bramble, Spice

  • Origin

    This 'Bordeaux blend' comes from various sites within Hawkes Bay, including the famed Gimblett Gravels area, which provides a warm climate and stony, free-draining soils, suiting the Bordeaux grape varieties superbly. 12 months' maturation in oak completes the package.

  • Taste

    Vibrant and fairly un-Bordeaux-like in its fruit character, this wine is richly cassis flavoured, with a soft ripeness to its ample tannins, making it bold but instantly approachable.

  • Enjoy

    Drink now with rich meat dishes, or keep for up to 5 years for further softness and development.

Special Distribution

Special distribution

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London. Wines labelled 'Special Distribution' are sent by courier from the Fine Wine Centre to your local Majestic before your delivery can be completed. This allows you to choose from a much greater range, but does mean delivery may take a few days longer than usual.
