Expert Reviews

Quite punch fruit with red capsicum, gooseberry, lime zest and passionfruit characters. Good flavour concentration and sweetness with lively, juicy acidity promoting a bone-dry and lengthy finish. Bob Campbell MW- Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine (FEB-MAR/2011)

Villa Maria is probably New Zealand’s best performing large wine company in quality terms, so it’s no surprise that its “savvy” is one of the best. Blackcurrant, tropical fruit and leafy aromas have more depth and dimension than most, and the plump palate has intense, slightly fruit-sweet flavour counterpointed by lip-smacking acidity.4.5 Stars - Ralph Kyte-Powell, Age (22/March/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes


A beautifully pure and lively wine, overflowing with aromas of ripe gooseberry, and passionfruit with hints of grapefruit, lime and nettle.


The wine is concentrated and juicy with vibrant fruit and fantastic mid palate weight, finishing with a crisp fresh acidity.

Food Matching

Grilled fish, tomato, green bean and feta cheese salad.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy now and until 2013.

Winemaking Notes

Each vineyard was harvested at optimum flavour ripeness and processed separately to provide the greatest number of blending options. A proportion of the vineyard parcels received skin contact in the winery to enhance the intensity of flavours, before the fruit was gently pressed, cold settled and racked for fermentation.

Cool fermentation techniques were used to retain purity of flavour and aromatics. After fermentation the wines remained on yeast lees for several months to build mouth-feel. The wines were then racked and blended, gently fined, filtered and immediately bottled, capturing purity of flavour, freshness and richness.

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.
