Villa Maria (Hawkes Bay) 2019 Cellar Selection Merlot Cabernet

Champion Merlot Dominant Hawke's Bay Wine Awards

Gold Medal - Royal Easter Show Wine Awards

Gold Medal - Hawke's Bay Wine Awards

Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Competition

This deeply coloured wine displays perfumed aromas of dark berry fruits, violets and dried herbs with complexing oak spice characters. A smooth and approachable palate follows with sweet fruit, supple tannins and moreish acidity. Serving Suggestions Merlot-Cabernet blends are particularly good when paired with robust, fullflavoured dishes, red meat and cheeses. Drink now or hold for up to 5-8 years when the wine will develop further complexity.

 2019 was an exceptional Hawkes Bay vintage, particularly for reds. Moderate yields combined with warmer than average temperatures and dry conditions encouraged fruit to achieve optimum ripeness and maintain excellent condition through to harvest. The fruit from this wine comes from a range of Villa Maria Hawkes Bay vineyards, where free draining alluvial soils temper vine vigour, resulting in low yields of ripe and concentrated fruit. Post fermentation the parcels were pressed to oak barriques, 15% new, for 12 months maturation.  77% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cab Franc, 2% Malbec

Villa Maria (Marlborough) 2020 Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc

Gold -New World Wine Awards 2020
Silver - New Zealand International Wine Show 2020
93/100 -Cameron Douglas MS

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes destined for this Cellar Selection wine were harvested in cool night temperatures to protect the aromatics. Clear juice is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains. The wine is left to mature on yeast lees for a short period of time to build palate weight and texture into the wine, without compromising freshness.

Aromas of snow pea, kaffir lime and gooseberry. The wine is powerful and refined, displaying vibrant grapefruit and subtle passionfruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and a balanced acidity.

Villa Maria Reserve (Marlborough) 2020 Pinot Gris

Gold - Royal Easter Show Wine Awards
5 Stars - Michael Cooper’s Buyer's Guide - New Zealand
94Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit - New Zealand

The fruit is grown in the cooler, windier Awatere Valley, promoting slower ripening in the autumn weather which helps concentrate Pinot Gris flavours and retain natural acidities.

A rich, textural, opulent wine with a creamy palate from spending extended time ageing on yeast lees. The exotic tropical fruit flavours are framed by a soft, yet balanced acidity and unctuous texture. A near-perfect growing season led up to 2020 harvest with fruit in pristine condition. 

The summer was dry with high sunshine hours during the day and the cooler nights that are typical for Marlborough. Yields were at their optimum level and the stable autumn weather allowed us to extend the hangtime of the fruit on the vines to achieve physiological ripeness.

A stunning oppulent style of Pinot Gris

Villa Maria Reserve (Marlborough) 2021 Wairau Valley Sauvignon Blanc

94 Points & Rated Excellent - Cameron Douglas MS CamDouglasMS.com
"Fruity and layered, varietal and herbaceous, complex and spicy, salty and mineral. Aromas and flavours of fresh sage and tropical fruits, red apple, sweet lemon and fresh golden kiwifruit. Dry, crisp, salivating and complex with flavours that reflect the bouquet, a core of fruit contrasted by acidity then mineral flavours of wet stones and sea air. Balanced, well made, lengthy and ready. Step it up a notch and explore a fine example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2025+."

Winemaker's Comment
A classic representation of Sauvignon Blanc from the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, bursting with aromatic tropical fruit characters found in this warmer sub-region. This wine displays powerful aromas of blackcurrant, passionfruit and ripe rock-melon. The palate has an enticing array of ripe citrus fruits mixed with pungent herbs such as fresh rosemary, finishing with subtle acidity.
