Villa Maria Platinum Selection Organic Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2018
This Platinum Selection Organic Pinot Noir Rosé showcases aromas of dried herbs, rose petals and freshly picked strawberries. On the palate, subtle hints of wet stone minerality intermingle with red fruits like cranberry, finishing with a crunchy texture reminiscent of pomegranate seeds.
Villa Maria Platinum Selection ‘Sur Lie’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018
A textural expression of Sauvignon Blanc with a richer riper tropical fruit profile than the usual Marlborough style. This Platinum Sur Lie Sauvignon Blanc is aged on yeast lees to build palate weight and a creamy texture into the wine. Balanced with gentle acidity and subtle hints of smokey mineral tones adding complexity.
Villa Maria Platinum Selection ‘Sur Lie’ Marlborough Pinot Gris 2018
This Platinum Pinot Gris is 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.
Villa Maria Platinum Selection Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2017
Predominantly sourced from our iconic Keltern Vineyard, barrel fermented and perfectly blended to produce a distinctive wine, this Chardonnay reveals a fragrant nose of ripe stone fruit, with complexing toast and vanilla characters from French oak. The wine is matured ‘sur lie’ (on yeast lees) adding further richness and texture prior to bottling.
Villa Maria Platinum Selection Organic Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017
A key focus of Villa Maria is to be environmentally responsible and to operate using sustainable practices in order to protect the land for future generations. This organic Platinum Selection Pinot Noir expresses black fruits like boysenberries and blueberries with subtle floral notes and gentle acidity. The cocoa powder tannins and smokey toasty notes add complexity with a generous juicy finish.
