Villa Maria Reserve Noble Riesling Botrytis Selection
Nectar of the Gods, it's heavenly alright

Villa Maria Reserve Noble Riesling Botrytis Selection

2015, Marlborough New Zealand

Cheese
  • Gold medal sticky from Villa's kick ass Reserve lavbel
  • They call these wines "Nectar of the Gods" - heavenly with the likes of blue cheeses, dried fruits or creme brulee!
  • Cellar until 2025 (if you can wait that long!)

A seriously classy wine made from Riesling grapes that were left on the vine to rot a little bit. Sounds a bit odd, but it's a common technique discovery by accident in the 18th century, known as "Noble Rot".

By leaving the Riesling grapes hanging on the vines, and picking them well past normal picking time, they expose the little buggers to a fungus called "Botrytis". The evaporation caused by the fungus removes water from the grape leaving a grape packed with mouthfilling, rich and concentrated flavours. God we love science!

Villa Maria are NZ's most award winning winery and you'd do well to find a wine under their Reserve label that hasn't impressed judges and critics alike - this little guy took out a Gold medal at NZ's oldest wine show, the Royal Easter Wine Show (2016).

Speaking of old, you can carefully cellar this one until 2025 (if you can wait that long) and enjoy this sweet nectar with blue cheeses, dried fruits or creme brulee.
