Description

The Library Release designation is reserved only for the very finest wines, from the very best vintages in Villa Maria's catalogue. Prior to 2013, 2009 was considered Hawkes Bay's finest vintage. Time is proof and the best 2009's get better every time we taste them. This wine can be enjoyed now with great food and company, but will also continue to develop with grace under screwcap through to 2022

Smells

This wine is developing amazing complexity, with ripe cedary cassis aromas, roses, tobacco, plums, spice and all things nice!

Tastes

8 years of aging have already been done for you, now it's time for you to sit back and enjoy the lovely smooth, full body weight showing dark berries, dried thyme and well-integrated French oak (70% new).
