Winemaking Note

The superb vintage and beautifully balanced vineyards produced grapes which were harvested at varying levels of ripeness over a five week period, providing for an array of flavours and blending options. The fruit was crushed, pressed and settled for 24 hours before being racked clean off press solids for fermentation. Both neutral and aromatic yeast strains were used. Fermentation was conducted cool at 12-14ºC to ensure maximum retention of delicate flavours and aromatics. Soon after fermentation was completed the wine was bottled to capture its vibrancy and freshness.

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.
