Description

  • French oak
  • Bright florals
  • Milk chocolate
  • Soft velvety tannins

This Marlborough Reserve Pinot Noir 2018 showcases bright floral aromas as well as fresh cherries. On the palate is an inviting mixture of milk chocolate and juicy Summer berries with hints of fresh portabello mushrooms. This complex wine shows both purity and richness with soft velvety tannins and a gentle acidity to complete the wine.

In 2018, 50% of the Pinot Noir fruit for this Reserve Pinot Noir came from two vineyards with deep clay-based soils in the Wairau Valley. Rutherford and Cowley are in the sheltered north-facing Ben Morven Valley. The Taylors Pass and Seddon Vineyards are in the cooler Awatere Valley, both with freedraining windblown silt loess soils adjacent to the Awatere River.

The 2018 growing season started with excellent Spring weather and a strong flowering period which was followed by a Summer of hot weather with regular rainfall events. With the warm temperatures and ample soil moisture, the harvest started earlier than the previous two vintages, luckily the cooler Autumn weather helped retain natural acidities as the season progressed. It was an undeniable quality advantage to be hand harvesting Pinot Noir from the key vineyard sites, harvest plans were kept very dynamic, but this extra attention to detail in the vineyard has certainly provided the Villa Maria Marlborough winery team with the best opportunity to craft great wines from a difficult year.
