It gives us great pleasure to unveil Villa Maria Attorney Marlborough Pinot Noir, the newest addition to the prestigious and limited Villa Maria Icon range. This new Icon joins their esteemed Villa Maria Ngakirikiri Hawkes Bay Cabernet Sauvignon as the ultimate embodiment of their passion to craft and sharing the very best New Zealand wines with the world as they celebrate over 60 years of extraordinary New Zealand winemaking. The Attorney Pinot Noir will only be released from the most exceptional vintages that support the required level of quality, care, and attention.

Attorney Vineyard is one of Marlborough’s premier Pinot Noir sites which, in the 2019 growing season, presented with an extraordinary parcel of fruit. A powerful statement of Marlborough Pinot Noir, the vine maturity, natural balance, and biodiversity of Attorney Vineyard produces single vineyard Pinot Noir with beguiling elegance and complexity.

Planted in 2002, Attorney Vineyard is situated in the Southern Valleys subregion of Marlborough on a north-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.

Villa Maria began its organic program in 1999 and Attorney Vineyard was converted and fully BioGro-certified as organic in 2012. The Pinot Noir fruit sourced from this vineyard has thick skins and small berries contributing to the dark colour and bold tannin structure.

The bouquet showcases power and concentration without losing the important attribute of pinosity - meaning there’s a subtle, complex and even pretty side to this wine revealed after about two hours in the glass. Aromas and flavours of dark red currant and black cherry then a layer of dark roses...

Tasting Profile

The first impression of Attorney is stern, this is a wine that wants to be noticed, and should be taken seriously, however as it opens up you should find ample black cherry fruit, bold tannins, and subtle graphite minerality from the oak supporting the wine and adding freshness. This broody, dense Pinot Noir has heady aromas of coffee beans, dried herbs, and freshly picked black cherries.
On the palate, the smooth rounded cocoa tannins are balanced by the youthful acidity and subtle hints of toasty oak.
