Expert Reviews

"Mid crimson, Restrained, peppery red and dark fruit. Then more savoury and serious on the palate with no unnecessary sweetness. Rich but not heavy. Long, too." Rating 17/20 - Julia Harding MW, www.jancisrobinson.com (15/AUG/2012)

"The Cellar Selection was a blend of three single vineyard sites and showed dried herbs, redcurrant flavours and an appealing minerality."

Katrina Holden, www.sipyourstyle.com.au

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, berry fruit and spice notes.

Palate

This medium bodied wine is concentrated and juicy displaying long layers of flavour, integrated acidity and fine grainy tannins. It exhibits finesse and complexity with underlying structure and a supple texture that can be enjoyed now in its youth.

Cellaring Potential

With careful cellaring the wine will continue to develop for another five to eight years.

Food Matching

Red and white meats including lamb, duck and wild game.

Founded in 1961 by current owner and Managing Director, George Fistonich, Villa Maria is a privately owned winery.

Villa Maria produces New Zealand's most awarded wines and has achieved acclaim, both nationally and internationally since the early 1980's.  This outstanding achievement is due to an uncompromising commitment and dedication to quality at all stages of the grape growing and winemaking processes.

Villa Maria sources grapes from each of New Zealand's premium grape growing regions: Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and produces wines in two state of the art wineries situated in Marlborough and Auckland. Villa Maria was the first major wine company in New Zealand to seal their wines with screwcaps, ensuring their wine reaches the consumer just as the winemaker intended.
