From the 'once in a lifetime' Hawkes Bay vintage of 2013, this flagship wine represents the pinnacle of our winemaking achievements and marks a milestone in Villa Maria's 53 years of history. This exclusive, age worthy red wine featuring Bordeaux varietals (in 2013 predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon), sets a new benchmark for quality and is positioned at the top of Villa Maria's portfolio.

This deep ruby coloured wine yields notably intense and pure aromatics of cassis, red and black plum and floral violet scents, with fresh ground coffee bean, fragrant dried thyme and cedar spice nuances also vying for attention. Layers of concentrated flavours emerge and flow beautifully across the palate from start to finish, with optimally ripe fruit, fine-grained tannins and supportive oak enhancing overall texture and richness at each point along the way. This full bodied and age worthy wine will benefit and gain additional complexity from careful cellaring over the next 15-20 years.
