More Information

The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards located across the Hawkes Bay region. An array of soil profiles combined with high sunshine hours and low rainfall make Hawkes Bay New Zealand’s ‘home’ to the French Bordeaux varieties Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. A significant portion of the final blend was grown in the gravel soils of Villa Maria’s SH-50 vineyards. The free draining gravel soil has a devigourating effect on vines and results in red wines with enhanced structure, flavour and colour.
