Villa Maria Reserve Gimblett Gravels Malbec
Country: New Zealand, Hawkes Bay
Tasting Notes: A deeply coloured and brooding wine perfumed with the scent of blackberries, plums, vanilla and peppery spices. Darkly fruited, this intensely concentrated wine also offers beautifully integrated tannins and complexing oak derived aromatics and flavours. Stand alone Malbec wines are rare in New Zealand, however, the 2015 vintage produced a special wine, fully deserving of a separate bottling.
Varietal: 100% Malbec
