Vineyards and Winemaking

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. Villa Maria began its organic program in 1999 and we achieved our first Biogro certification in 2007. The Attorney vineyard was converted and fully Biogro certified as organic in 2012, so this 2015 single vineyard Pinot Noir is only the third organic wine bottled from this site. The Attorney Vineyard is situated in the Southern Valleys sub-region of Marlborough, on a northern facing block on the dry eastern foothills of the Wairau Valley. This sub-region receives minimal rainfall in the growing season and its deep clay soils provide perfect conditions to apply organic farming principles. The Pinot Noir fruit sourced from this vineyard has thick skins and small berries contributing towards the dark colour and bold tannin structure in this wine. 

Concentrated pinot noir with a core of sweet plum, cherry fruit flavours flattered by subtle use of classy oak giving a savoury, smoky, spicy influence. Deliciously drinkable now but could develop well with a little bottle age. 96 points
