"Monro" is the name bestowed on Villiera's flagship wines, which have long been its renowned MCC and Bordeaux blend. Named one of the top ten, 10 year old Bordeaux Blends in South Africa in by Winemag in 2017, this 2007 vintage Villiera Monro is a truly remarkable wine among the Stellenbosch classics. With a cellaring potential of 10 to 15 years, this 2007 is drinking beautifully. Ripe, sweet cassis-like fruit and a savoury, tertiary character are telling of its age; however this is contrasted by a beautifully delicate backbone of acidity and softened tannins which have carried it through so many years of age. Expect concentrated berry fruit with just a touch of dark chocolate and a delectable spiciness. Awarded Winemag 91 points.
