EarthGarden is an exciting new range from Villa Maria with a focus on sustainable production, biodiversity and healthy soils. The wines are all organic and vegan and this new range is an important step in moving all Villa Maria vineyards to organic production by 2030.
This Hawke's Bay Merlot Cab is a big old softie with ripe dark fruit flavous, silky tannins and a long, smooth finish. It pairs perfectly with red meat dishes or strong cheese.
The winery writes "Deep purple coloured hues lead to a perfumed nose of dark fruits, cocoa, sweet vanilla and clove spices. The full bodied palate is soft and generous with ripe fruit, silky tannins and a smooth finish."
