Overview

As has been the case for many years, this single vineyard wine is from the Fletcher Vineyard in Marlborough. Located in the Raupara Road area, this stony vineyard is extremely devigourating and low yielding. Managed to optimise botrytis infection, often this vineyard is the last block that Villa Maria harvests in Marlborough.

Winery Tasting Notes

A mix of aromatic Riesling lime and lemon notes intertwined with noble apricot and mandarin botrytis characters. A very luscious and concentrated dessert style wine which with careful cellaring will develop further complexity in the bottle (August 2007).

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Founded in 1961 by current owner and Managing Director, George Fistonich, Villa Maria is a privately owned winery.

Villa Maria produces New Zealand's most awarded wines and has achieved acclaim, both nationally and internationally since the early 1980's.  This outstanding achievement is due to an uncompromising commitment and dedication to quality at all stages of the grape growing and winemaking processes.

Villa Maria sources grapes from each of New Zealand's premium grape growing regions: Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and produces wines in two state of the art wineries situated in Marlborough and Auckland. Villa Maria was the first major wine company in New Zealand to seal their wines with screwcaps, ensuring their wine reaches the consumer just as the winemaker intended.
