About Our Ratings

Villa Maria 2008 Pinot Noir Reserve, Marlborough
A terrific find, this outstanding Pinot Noir is a blend of fruit parcels from Villa Maria’s single vineyard sites. The fruit represents a unique selection of vineyards, clones and viticultural techniques from both the Awatere and Southern valleys of Marlborough. The vineyards selected are managed with an unrelenting focus on vine health and balance. Extensive canopy management is carried out to ensure this ‘balance’ is achieved in addition to a high focus on irrigation regimes to ensure berries stayed small. The grapes where destemmed 100% and the wine was barrel fermented in open top French barriques about ¼ new oak. The caps were punched down by hand. After fermentation the wine aged 12 to 16 months in barrel before egg white fining and bottling. Now with extended bottle age this wine shows immense complexity and silky softness. Wood smoke, exotic spices and wild berry flavors play on a lush velvety mid palate. The finish is smoky and long. A beautiful and expressive wine. New Zealand wine writer and expert Bob Campbell MW, scored this wine 94 points. Grab it now while it's On Sale!!
