Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A classic Wairau Valley style showcasing the ripe fruit characters found in this sub region. The nose exhibits pungent aromas of passionfruit, ripe gooseberry, black currant and boxwood characters.

Palate

The palate is powerful with an explosive array of ripe gooseberry and tropical flavours, naturally complemented by crisp acidity and a long finish.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy now but cellaring for 18 - 24 months will be greatly rewarded.

Vintage Condition

The 2010 vintage was cooler than average, with regular rain up to late February, concluding with a long, and warm dry autumn. All of these factors contributed to excellent vine vitality, fruit flavour concentration and balance at harvest.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
