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 amazing 2019 vintage came along George pushed the button to produce the fourth ever release of this absolutely exceptional quality 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that has quite rightly left scored a whopping 96/100 and a Top Rank award with The Real Review’s Bob Campbell Master of Wine:

“Dense, inky red with cassis, black berry, dark-fleshed plum, dark chocolate/mocha and spicy oak flavours. A generously proportioned wine with a firm backbone of ripe tannins. Impressive wine with a promising future. Aerate for best results.”

Presented in a stunning Ngakirikiri gift box, this is rare, collectable and made with seriously long term cellaring in mind!
