Wine tasting notes

The nose of this intriguing wine reveals floral wild herb aromas with notes of red plum, smoked bacon and white pepper. The palate contributes further plum and herb characters, wrapped up with silky smooth tannins. This is a supple and highly approachable wine which is excellent with food.

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 fermentation, the wine was transferred to a mixture of tanks and seasoned oak barriques for maturation. After 9 months maturation on light lees, the wine was blended, lightly egg white fined and filtered before bottling.
