Villa Maria Cellar Selection Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020/2022 750mlWinemaker's Comment
Our 2020 Cellar Selection Marlborough Pinot Noir has aromatics reminiscent of freshly roasted coffee beans and red summer fruits such as cherries and berries. On the palate, a subtle hint of toasty oak nicely frames the juicy fruit, earthy texture and soft velvety tannins.Winemaking
Fruit is harvested at night during cooler temperatures, then destemmed and transferred to open-top stainless steel tanks for 3-4 days of cold soaking to extract aromatics. A mixture of indigenous and cultured yeasts are used with ferments, peaking at 32-34℃c to extract the desired colour and tannins. After fermentation, the wine spent 10 months in a mixture of 23% new and 77% seasoned French oak barriques on full lees to add palate weight and texture.
