Villa Maria Reserve Pinot Noir 2019



90 pts Decanter

A blend of fruit from four sites, including Villa’s prized Taylor’s Pass and Seddon vineyards in the cool Awatere Valley. Aromas of smoky red cherry lead to a high-toned, mineral palate of cherry liqueur that has a brisk seam of acidity running through, and integrated oak spice notes from 14 months in barrel, 35% new. Drink 2021-2024.

Winemaker Notes

Part of the Pinot Noir fruit for this Reserve Pinot Noir comes from two vineyards with deep claybased 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
free-draining windblown silt loess soils adjacent to the Awatere River.

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.
