Pale straw in colour. The bouquet brings pungent aromatics of lemongrass, jalapeño and fresh herbs leap from the glass, with the classic aromas of limes and the crunch of freshly picked garden peas. Select parcels of fruit from meticulously managed vineyard blocks are kept separate in the winery before being skilfully arranged into a wine with intensity, structure and texture. The palate retains the natural acidity and emphasizes chalky-seashell and mineral texture on the finish.

Villa Maria's 60 year journey at the forefront of New Zealand's wine industry has shaped the company as it stands today. Our extensive portfolio is one the most geographically and stylistically diverse and highly-awarded range of premium wines by any New Zealand producer, fuelling consumer adoration and success across the globe. Throughout the 1960s Villa Maria was a one-man band. In 1961, at just 21 years of age, Sir George Fistonich leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. The first wine under the name Villa Maria in 1962 was made with grapes harvested from this block. Today, Villa Maria is a globally recognised and adored for its bold, expressive and exceptional New Zealand wines.
