2 09 2013

Villa Maria Cellar Selection Riesling, a real bargain from Alko! And again riesling, now from New Zealand.

Villa Maria wineyards was founded 1961 in Auckland, New Zealand. Today, although it is not the biggest in the area, company exports wines to over 50 countries Finland being one of them. Vineyard is in Marlborough region which is mainly known from it’s Savignon Bland wines, but after tasting this riesling would say it is now known from riesling wines.

THE LOOK

Color of the wine was pale yellow with quantum of green.

THE NOSE

The wine displays youthful dry riesling characters of citrus fruit, lemon and lime. Some minerals and acids, but they do not interfere with the overall flavor.

THE TASTE

Taste was one of the best for riesling wines ever. Flavor was balanced including all elements of riesling; some minerals, acidity, lime/lemon and fruits.

Facts and figures:

Alcohol:             12,50

Extract :             26 g/l

Acidity:              7,4 g/l

Sugar:                8 g/l

Energy :             80 kcal / 100 ml (320 kJ / 100 ml)

Closure:            metal screw cap

Recommend this wine for aperitif and it matches with all types of fish, chicken, shell fish and escpecially with crayfish and even with Vorschmack. For pasta and pizza…, why not, but this wine is too noble for them.

REVIEW: OVERALL GRADE 4,5/5 – BANG FOR THE BUG +++/+++
