Description

A special cellar release from Sir George Fistonich, Villa Maria is one of the only NZ producers with a serious commitment to offering aged wines. 2007 was a very strong year in the Hawke's Bay, the wines showing very well in their youth and now much better with a decade on them. Villa Maria's Reserve Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 shows lots of rich, savoury bottle development characters set against a concentrated core of primary and secondary fruit. Really coming into a magnificent drinking window, it will be at its best over the next 8 to 10 years through 2027, but no doubt will cellar much longer than that for those who like old wines.

Smells

Lovely savoury meaty aromas like a cooked leg of lamb, with cedar, graphite, cassis and dark plums.

Tastes

Very elegant and powerful on the palate, with a fineness of palate and refinement rarely seen except in bottle-aged examples of great reds. A wine already offering amazing drinking but with its best years still in front of it, you must try this with a joint of lamb over the next decade.
