Villa Maria Ries Marl Cs 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Since George Fistonich founded Villa Maria in 1961, it has grown in reputation to become New Zealand's most successful privately owned winery and maker of New Zealand's most awarded wines. Many respected wine writers and critics support this statement; The new Sotheby's Wine Encylopedia stated of Villa Maria "Probably the best all round producer in New Zealand. Villa Maria has a vast array of wines, yet they are all beautifully crafted to enhance fruit and finesse.... if the quality is super, the consistency is supernatural". This success has been achieved through the Villa Maria team's total commitment to the quality of its varietal wines which is continuously rewarded in national and international wine competitions. This Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon features ripe red cherry, raspberry and cassis fruits with cedar-spice undertones. A full and rich palate follows, enhanced by fine grained tannins and good length. As a result this wine is the perfect choice for pairing with barbequed red meats or a rich, full-flavoured venison casserole.

Private Bin Merlot / Cabernet 2007 - Villa Maria : Private Bin Merlot / Cabernet 2007 - Rotwein von Villa Maria EstateDiese neuseeländische Cuvée im Bordeaux-Stil überzeugt mit seinem ausgezeichneten Preis-Genuss-Verhältnis.Ein mittleres Rubinrot funkelt im Glas. Die Nase wird von recht kühlen Aromen frisch gepresster dunkler reifer Beeren umspielt. Die wunderbare Harmonie von Pflaume und Cassis krönt eine dezente Zedernholznote. Am Gaumen präsentiert sich der Private Bin Merlot / Cabernet 2007 von Villa Maria mit einem intensiven Aromenspiel aus Cassis, Pflaumen, dunklen Kirschen bis hin zu Zedernholz und Biskuitnoten. Insgesamt wirkt sein Körper immer noch zierlich, die Tannine sind deutlich wahrnehmbar und deren Struktur sehr feinkörnig. Die frische Säure ist in den Körper perfekt integriert. Dieser sehr reichhaltige und komplexe Rotwein erfreut schließlich mit einem langen Finale.Zu gegrilltem Lamm oder Rind und zu würzig-aromatischen Eintopfgerichten aus dem Ofen ist dieser Blend ein Hochgenuss. Er sollte etwas eine Stunde vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: Villa Maria EstateLand: NeuseelandRegion: Hawkes BayRebsorte: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet FrancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Restsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 5-7 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CAuszeichnungen für den Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot / Cabernet 2007:3,5 Sterne - Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide edition 2008  Rotwein > Neuseeland > Hawkes Bay
