Ray Jordan's Top 100 Reds 2023
"Designed as a ready to go easy drinking wine. It is so beautifully structured with its light to medium body toting plenty of flavour intensity. It's a blend of 75% cabernet with the balance merlot. It's silky smooth with a leafy mineral component merging with the red fruits. Excellent for now."
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.
