Villa Maria Reserve Pinot Noir 2019

Wine Production

Part of the Pinot Noir fruit for this Reserve Pinot Noir comes from two vineyards with deep clay-based soils in the Wairau Valley. Rutherford and Cowley are in the sheltered north-facing Ben Morven Valley. The remaining Pinot Noir comes from the cooler Awatere Valley, both with freedraining windblown silt loess soils adjacent to the Awatere River.

Tasting Notes

Our Marlborough Reserve Pinot Noir showcases bright floral aromas as well as fresh cherries. On the palate is an inviting mixture of dark chocolate and juicy summer berries with hints of fresh portabello mushrooms. This complex wine shows both purity and richness with soft velvety tannins and toasty oak influence which completes the wine.
