I tasted this wine in early 2013 and the wine is past its prime. Lemon and lime nose and good acid balance are seen. This is a dry wine and the fruit is mostly gone. My rating-- 76.

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKER’S COMMENT A pure and delicate bouquet of ripe citrus-lime and spring-blossom aromas. The palate is beautifully balanced with intense flavours, lovely juicy length and a zesty lime finish. Great on its own or with light fresh food. INEYARD DESCRIPTION Villa Maria’s Riesling vineyards are scattered throughout both the Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough. The vineyards are managed to ensure ripe and clean fruit. Timely canopy management activities such as shoot thinning and leaf plucking along with an attention to vine health optimises the opportunity for the ideal vineyard flavours at harvest. WINEMAKING The grapes for this wine were harvested in the cool of the morning then gently pressed. The resulting juice was allowed to naturally settle before cool fermentation with neutral yeasts to aid in savouring the delicate Riesling aromatics. The ferments were stopped at just the right time to give a slightly off-dry styled wine which was then blended and lightly fined prior to bottling.
