Villa Maria Reserve Marlborough Noble Riesling Botrytis Selection


One of New Zealand’s top sweet wines on the show circuit. It is typically stunningly perfumed, weighty and oily, with intense, very sweet honey/citrus flavours, and a lush, long finish. The grapes are grown mainly in the Fletcher Vineyard, in the centre of Marlborough’s Wairau Plains, where trees create a ‘humidity crib’ around the vines and sprinklers along the vines’ fruit zone create ideal conditions for the spread of noble rot. The luscious 2015 vintage (5*), hand-harvested in mid-May, is a pale gold wine, light (10 per cent alcohol), peachy, sweet (240 grams/litre of residual sugar), oily-textured and long, with instant appeal.
