Wine tasting notes

The Taylor Pass vineyard is warm and sheltered producing an intensely ripe style Pinot Noir that is not typical of the Marlborough region. This wine is a single vineyard expression of the Taylors Pass site, showcasing an intense bouquet of brooding dark cherry and violets meddling with subtle fresh herb notes. A harmony of tannins, with a soft acidity and graphite minerality provide great focus, tension and length to the palate. On the finish there are layers of dark chocolate, dried herbs and spicy oak.

Winery information

Villa Maria

It is not easy to tell your Dad that you are quitting a career in carpentry to try your hand at making wine. But in 1961, at the age of 21, that's exactly what Sir George Fistonich did. He leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name 'Villa Maria' which he chose because his friends thought it sounded European. Since those first cuttings took hold in the soil out in Mangere, near Auckland, Sir George has been determined to be at the cutting edge of quality winegrowing.
