Wine of the Month

Wine of the Month: Villa Maria

With Villa Maria being ‘New Zealand’s Most Awarded Winery’, we are more than pleased to have three of their premium wines as our wine of the month for July.
Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – Lifted aromatics of lemongrass and fresh herbs such as thyme or coriander. This leads into a pure concentrated palate with punchy flavours of jalapeno and grapefruit zest, finishing with a hint of gunflint, a chalky texture and lingering balanced acidity.
Glass $14 | Bottle $70

Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Pinot Noir 2012 – A perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherry the aroma is attractive and refined. The palate displays layers of forest berry fruit intermingled with subtle dried herb and gentle spice characters creating a long grainy texture. This elegant wine is sleek and succulent with charming balance and finesse.
Glass $17 | Bottle $80

Villa Maria Cellar Selection Hawkes Bay Syrah 2015 – Dense purple and crimson hues lead to an intensely perfumed nose of violet, black fruit, herb and spice aromas. The palate is medium to full bodied, supple and silky in texture, featuring wonderfully integrated tannins and plush oak. Pure and precise fruit flavours lead the wine to a lengthy finish.
Glass $14 | Bottle $70
