Description

Villa Maria consistently sets the benchmark for all varieties in NZ across many price points. This Reserve Albariño 2022 is more proof if needed. The variety of Albariño originates from Spain’s Galicia province, hence is well suited to the similarly warm, maritime climate of New Zealand’s East Coast, where it flourishes. Albariño grapes are used to produce fruit-forward wines with elegant, lightly spiced, or floral aromatics with juicy stone fruit and citrus characteristics on the palate. The lusciousness of serious Pinot Gris with stonefruit and texture common to quality unoaked Chardonnay. If you want something new and exciting to brighten your summer, this is it! A deliciously dry, unoaked, white wine perfect with salads, cheese, seafood… and by itself. The essence of summer in your glass.

Smells

Beautifully pure and fragrant bouquet with peach, lime, and a saline mineral complexing thread.

Tastes

Rich, oily palate with a superb mineral texture that’s instantly appealing, it makes you instantly think, I’m into this… and speaks big time to the potential for Albariño in NZ. The palate unleashes flavours of kaffir lime leaves, peach skin, and granny smith apples with hints of grapefruit. Rich, weighty and salivating, strikingly well balanced. 500% satisfying… summer in a glass.
