Villiera Down to Earth Red 2010

An explosion of spice and dark berry flavours with the tannin caressing the palate. The extra dimension of integrated oak was all that was needed to complete the picture of a modern wine that illustrates the art of blending.

  • in the vineyard : The precious earth which nurtures the vine is infinitely variable. The roots penetrate deep down and in the process a unique character is extracted and transferred to the bunches - nature's work really.

    The Grier family of Villiera has created a red wine with reliable character, that tastes of the earth in which it grows - 'Down to Earth'.

    in the cellar : The concept was to create a wine that can be enjoyed by all. It is rich and intense but also smooth and drinkable. "Down to Earth" is packaged to grace any table and the style ensures that it can be enjoyed at any occasion - the price also allows it.

    The winemakers spent days creating the blend. They started with Shiraz but Jeff was looking for something with more fruit so Touriga Nacional was added for colour, depth and fruit. Perfect!
