THE HAWKES BAY RED DEAL TO END ALL HAWKES BAY RED DEALS  |  A COMPELLING OPPORTUNITY THAT SITS AT THE VERY HIGHEST STANDARDS OF NEW ZEALAND WINEMAKING |  SAVE $852 on CASE BUYS! 

This is the second Flagship release under our much loved Big Villa label and this prestige Merlot Cabernet was vinted to retail at $90. We picked up this elite parcel from the same producer that provided us with the wines for our recent Big Villa Reserve deals but this small parcel of wine was destined to be released under the winery's revered top label before the winery was sold in 2017. 

This wine is a powerful statement that has received every possible attention in the vineyard and winery. Produced from stringently assessed, handpicked fruit it has been matured in barrel with approx. 40% new French oak. 2014 was a superb red wine vintage in Hawkes Bay and this wine is fragrant, complex and savoury with mouthfilling richness and fine, supple tannins. It is only now entering its prime drinking window and has a substantial cellar life ahead of it should you chose to lay some down. The blend is 66% Merlot and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon. 

PLEASE NOTE:  We agreed to release this Merlot blend in non traditional burgundy bottles to further blur the relationship with the winery's current release of this wine which sells at their cellar door for $90. 

TOP TIP: This elite wine was bottled in April 2018 and may still be suffering from 'bottle shock'  - a phenomenon where newly bottled wine doesn't show too well after going through the factory bottling process. The best way to counter this until the wine 'comes together' over the next month is to decant the wine before serving. Pouring the wine into a glass jug and then back into the bottle works a treat if you don't own a decanter. 


Big Villa is an Advintage brand. To protect their brand integrity, we are unable to divulge the identity of the winery who originally produced this wine. We can say that the producer is an iconic Hawkes Bay winery with a decades old reputation for crafting Hawkes Bay wines of the very highest calibre. Buy with complete confidence.

Description
This is a complete example of fine Hawkes Bay red wine. Fragrant and inviting, it is generously proportioned and supple in the mouth with masses of dark, savoury red fruits. The finish is clean and precise with creamy acidity and lingering flavours of spiced oak and plum. Already approachable, this wine has a 20 year cellar life ahead of it should you chose to lay some down.

Worth cellaring
A good drop before decanting but stunning after I decanted it - cant wait to try the bottles I've put away for next year. Probably wont make it
