    If there’s one wine to try this year it’s gotta be this. Villa Maria Cellar Selection Syrah 2018 – Trophy winner for the Champion New Zealand Wine of the Year! Trust us, this could easily be the best twenty bucks you spend on a bottle of wine all year.

    In fact this absolutely stunning Hawke’s Bay Syrah has a jaw dropping THREE Trophies to its name now having won Trophy for Champion Syrah and Trophy for Best Hawke’s Bay wine before going on to beat every other wine in the show to the overall top award, Champion NZ Wine of the Year!

    The NZ Wine of the Year is the wine industry’s official wine competition – you might remember it as the Air NZ Wine Awards. From over 1,200 NZ wines entered and three days of judging from a panel of 26 local and international experts – no wine skips through this competition with a Gold medal or Trophy without being seriously put to the test.

    A rich, silky, supple, medium bodied red and absolutely that’s just bursting with delicious dark berries and spice. The judges called this one “Delicious and savoury on the palate. Exceptionally well crafted.” 

    What a wine! This is the one everyone’s talking about right now. Make no mistake, the phone at Villa Maria HQ will have been ringing hot since this award was announced. With huge interest both here and overseas there’s no time to muck about, trust us when we say this vintage will be gone before you know. Grab more than you think you need – and do it now! It’s got the legs to be cellared for a good 6-7 years yet so open some now and tuck some away for a few years yet.
