Wine tasting notes

Bright lifted aromas reminiscent of spring, floral perfume, fresh lemon and limes jump out of the glass. The palate is light and crisp showing juicy apricot and mandarin flavours with a hint of ginger spice. This Private Bin Riesling is an off-dry style displaying excellent fruit sweetness balanced with zesty sherbet-like acidity on the finish.

Winery information

Villa Maria

It is not easy to tell your Dad that you are quitting a career in carpentry to try your hand at making wine. But in 1961, at the age of 21, that's exactly what Sir George Fistonich did. He leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name 'Villa Maria' which he chose because his friends thought it sounded European. Since those first cuttings took hold in the soil out in Mangere, near Auckland, Sir George has been determined to be at the cutting edge of quality winegrowing.

Vinification notes

After selective machine harvesting, the resulting clear juice was slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the distinctive crisp Riesling flavours
