The Villaggio red is a blend, primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon with components of Merlot and Chardonnay grown on the Estate vineyard in Forest Grove. The Villaggio range is a salute to the European ‘Village’ wines that offer tremendous value for money. A wine for weeknights, long table dinners and when friends drop by.
The nose displays a mix of blue and black fruits – blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry with underlying seasoned French oak. A fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon driven blend that exhibits fleshy tannins, black fruit – blackberry, blackcurrant and blueberry. The flavours are well supported by spicy, seasoned French oak characters and a savoury complexity.
