  • One for the ages - cellar for 20+ years!

A wine 25 years in the making. From the vintage of a lifetime. Produced by NZ's most awarded winery. A piece of NZ wine history is here and it's name is Ngakirikiri. It means "The Gravels" in Maori and it's Villa Maria's new flagship wine.

Over 25 years ago a special ceremony was held at the Ngakirikiri Vineyard in Hawke's Bay, blessed by Maori elders. Villa Maria owner Sir George Fistonich then planted vines on the special site with the idea to release his greatest ever red wine when the time was right.

So when the 2013 "vintage of a lifetime" came along George pushed the button to produce this absolutely exceptional quality Cabernet Sauvignon blend that has quite rightly left NZ's leading wine critics falling off their chairs in amazement...

100/100 - Sam Kim
"Is this perfection? No, it’s better than that, if that’s possible! ...this stunning wine (is) thought-provoking and sensually awe-inspiring."

98/100 - Bob Campbell MW
"This is a new flagship label that in my view justifies its exalted price tag. It’s quite an extraordinary wine… Definitely worth decanting, collectible and age worthy."

5 Stars - Michael Cooper MW
"It should flourish for decades; open 2020 onwards."

20/20 - Raymond Chan
"The wine has great drive, power, intensity and finess. It will live for 20 years."

19+ / 20 - Geoff Kelly
"It Villa Maria have a sensational wine here, with a 50-year cellar life... It will score higher in 10 years time."

A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon with 3% Merlot. Presented in a stunning Ngakirikiri gift box, this is rare, collectable and made with seriously long term cellaring in mind!
