Thornbury Merlot

"We're incredibly fortunate"

Thornbury Merlot

2022, Hawkes Bay New Zealand
  • Owned by Villa Maria with some fruit sourced from the Gimblett Gravels in Hawke's Bay (the benefits of being owned by the big boys!)
  • Consistently top value vintage after vintage
  • Perfect for your pork, poultry and pasta dishes
RRP $15.99


No wonder the dude on the front label is doing a little jig (that’s Dionysus by the way, Greek God of Wine) – there’s plenty to celebrate about when you’re owned by one of the most successful NZ wineries of all time (Villa Maria) and have access to their vast selection of top vineyards and grape growers all around the country.

Using fruit from a selection of their Hawke’s Bay vineyards, including the world famous Gimblett Gravels, it’s fair to say they’re pretty fortunate! There’d be winemakers out there that would give an arm and leg to tap into these kind of resources and still see their wine hitting the shelves for under $15!

This is a label that has consistently picked up accolades, gongs and solid reviews over the years – always good value, always reliable.

Soft, silky and sweetly fruited Merlot that’s sure to whack a smile on your dial at this price. Bust it open with pork, poultry and your favourite pasta dishes.
