Winemaker's comment

This wine has a dark purple hue. The nose shows depth of complexity with layers of red plum and cassis, mingling with coffee bean, dried herb and cedar spice nuances. The palate texture is soft yet concentrated, with layers of sweet dark fruit, cocoa and spice revolving around wonderful fine grained tannins and integrated oak.

Soils & Viticulture

The Gimblett Gravels vineyards of Villa Maria have produced consistently high quality fruit for the Reserve labels for well over a decade. The free-draining, gravelly soils and the warm temperatures of the Gimblett Gravels naturally encourage low yields and devigourated vines. Low crop levels with well spaced shoots numbering 20–25 per vine ensure the resulting fruit is deeply coloured, richly flavoured and displays ripe tannins.

Cellaring

Approachable in its youth, this wine will continue to benefit from careful cellaring up to 2019.
