Villa Maria EarthGarden Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon is a delightful New Zealand red wine blend, with superior characteristics and inviting richness. It melds Merlot's juicy plum essence and Cabernet Sauvignon's bold blackcurrant notes in perfect harmony. A whiff reveals an undertone of leather, spice and oak, while sips unveil a complex palate of dense fruitiness, soft tannins and a striking balance. Produced with sustainable practices, this wine celebrates Villa Maria’s commitment to honour the Earth. Savour this elegant offering in its full-bodied glory, ideally complemented by red meats or sharp cheeses. A fantastic British dinner party staple, it's a treat for any wine enthusiast.
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.
