Expert Reviews

The Kiwis have a better handle on pinot gris on the whole than their Aussie counterparts. This is a classic example from one of the country’s most reliable producers; it’s grapey, spicy, juicy, lovely. Max Allen Australian Gourmet Traveller Sep-08

A floral, pear-like style in which the aromatics faintly echo Alsace. The palate is nicely textured, long and balanced. Winewise Apr-08

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 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.
