Villa Maria Private Bin Merlot

Soft supple Hawke's Bay Merlot with vanilla oak flavours

Dark cherry and plum fruit notes mingle with a tad of smokiness. The grapes come from vineyards in Gimblett Gravels and the wine was previously only sold in New Zealand. Enjoy with roast lamb with a herb crust.

Butterflied BBQ lamb with Villa Maria Merlot

Butterflied BBQ lamb

The bold dark fruits are a perfect counterbalance for juicy roast lamb, why not butterfly your lamb and cook on the BBQ with garlic and rosemary.
