Big Villa LIBRARY RELEASE Merlot 2013

Big Villa LIBRARY RELEASE Merlot 2013

A COMPELLING MEGADEAL THAT SITS AT THE VERY HIGHEST STANDARDS OF NEW ZEALAND WINEMAKING. 


2013 was the 'vintage of a lifetime' in Hawke's Bay and this perfectly bottle-aged release is in exceptional form. Originally released as the 'best of vintage', flagship merlot by one of the Bay's finest winemaking teams*, this is a powerful wine that shows layers of complex dark fruit flavours, sweet vanillin oak spice and a finish that goes on and on.

On release this wine was smothered in accolades including a GOLD MEDAL at the Decanter World Wine Awards and 96pts from Cameron Douglas MS.   

Now softly rounded and perfectly integrated, this is a world class example of what bottle-aged New Zealand Merlot is capable of, and a credit to those involved in its production. 


*Big Villa Reserve 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 Hawke's Bay winery with a decades old reputation for crafting reserve wines of the very highest calibre. This wine is in perfect condition. Buy with complete confidence.
