Vinification Details
The grapes for this wine were picked in the cool of the night at peak flavour development. Each batch was lightly pressed and the juice was naturally settled. Cool fermentation with selected yeast strains was utilised to aid in retaining the delicate Riesling aromatics. The ferments were assessed and stopped with cooling to help form a concentrated yet dry styled wine

delicious

Im usually a Sauvignon blanc drinker when I have a glass of white. I bought this for a change. Its very nice, not sweet like this used to be in the 70s/80s. Ill definitely have the odd bottle of this in the fridge amongst my Sauvignon!

Already Re-Ordered

My main memories are of 70s bad Reislings. However I notice they have had a resurgence and I decided to try this, already being familiar with Villa Maria as a brand. It has a very green apple taste, and is less sweet than some Reislings I have tried in the recent past. Really like it and will definitely buy again.

Tastes very boring

Ill admit my favourite wine is the now un-stocked Brancott Estate Sauvignon Gris, so I like a bit of punch, but I like a usually enjoy a Riesling too. This just felt like drinking water, nothing interesting about it at all.

love!

We normally have the Villa Maria Marlborough Sauvignon but thought we would give the Riesling a go for a change, very glad we did, love the acidity, just ordered some more!

Awful

Probably one of the worst white wines I have tasted, extremely acidic - do not buy!

Great alternative to NZ sav blanc

Really love this. Great value when it's on offer. Makes a change from sav blanc. Easy drinking with or without food
