Villa Maria S V Braided Gravels Merlot 2013
Gold Medal - NZIWS 2015 Organic
Rich blue red. The bouquet is overflowing with sweet smoky oak, fruit cake spices and bright, juicy, ripe red berry fruits. Firm and powerful in the mouth with the assertive tannins tamed by ultra juicy fruit that is simply oozing super ripe mulberries and golden sultanas – it evokes memories of Griffins ‘Golden Fruit’ biscuits - and the smoky finish is beautifully balanced with the flavours never losing their intensity. It seems already complete but with a multitude of years ahead of it it will evolve quite magnificently. Made from organically grown grapes. 4 gold medals and Trophy at Bragato 2015.
