Villa Maria Reserve Pinot Noir 2013


100% Pinot Noir from a unique selection of vineyards, clones and viticultural techniques from both the Awatere and Wairau valleys of Marlborough. 

Fruit was hand picked, and hand plunged into open top ferments. Matured for 14 months in a mixture of new and seasoned French barriques. This wine received minimal egg white fining and minimal filtration. 

Winemaker's Comments

An outstanding Pinot Noir made from a blend of fruit parcels from Villa Maria's single vineyard sites. Deep red hues lead to a perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, wild berry and subtle spicy notes on the nose. Displays intense purity with an elegant and refined palate displaying richness and generosity. The complex palate is layered by fine silky tannins encasing concentrated fruit characters, all hallmark traits of classic Marlborough Pinot Noir. Will age gracefully and offer intrigue with bottle maturation.
