Villa Maria Reserve Marlborough Noble Riesling Botrytis Selection

Review:

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.
