Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"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. This Platinum Selection Organic Rosé from our grower Belmonte Pinot Noir vineyard showcases aromas of dried herbs, rose petals and freshly picked strawberries. On the palate, subtle hints of wet stone minerality intermingle with red fruits like cranberry, finishing with a
crunchy texture reminiscent of pomegranate seeds."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"This is delightfully inviting on the nose showing raspberry, nectarine, watermelon and floral aromas, leading to a juicy palate that is light and bright. The wine offers fabulous fruit purity and intensity, brilliantly supported by silky texture and a lingering refreshing finish. At its best: now to 2020. Certified organic."
89/100 Cameron Douglas MS, February 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Fresh, plush and fruity bouquet with aromas of red apple and strawberry, whispers of peach and red plum, some light red cherry. A suggestion of clay pot earthiness adds depth and intrigue. Dry on the palate with a core of fruitiness, a little spice and warmth then red fruit flavours, very fine fruit tannins and balanced finish. Nice wine and worthy of your attention. Drink now and through 2020."
