Ok, so we know that Villa Maria are one of the best producers in NZ and that they win a hell of a lot of medals (in fact they’re NZ’s most awarded winery) but when even their entry level, everyday quaffing Private Bin label is getting in on the act you know they’ve got the golden touch!
This is their Private Bin red blend from sunny old Hawke’s Bay – just the spot for growing ripe fruit full of flavour. They’ve blended two of the better known styles in this part of Aotearoa – Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and a splash of Malbec. A soft, easy drinking style full of dark berry and cherry fruit flavours.
Pair it with the Sunday roast or steaks, sausages and cuts of lamb coming off the BBQ.
