    This delicious '13 vintage is a sell out! New 2014 on its way soon.

    We’re sure people would drink more Riesling if they knew what style they were picking up. From totally bone dry to mouth puckering sweetness, Riesling does it all. It’s a great food wine and it cellars really well – what’s not to love?

    For those that prefer a dry style this is your wine. How do we know? They put it in the name of the wine! Villa Maria Cellar Selection Dry Riesling. Clever eh?

    This label has always been reliable down the years and this latest 2018 ain’t no different. Gold at the Marlborough Wine Show, Gold medal at the NZ Wine of the Year Awards. Hardly surprising coming from the most awarded winery in Aotearoa.

    And what does it taste like? Zesty citrus fruit flavours like limes and lemons, nicely balanced zingy acidity with a dry finish. Yum yum.

    This is an ideal wine to serve chilled as an aperitif – if you’re feeling a Master Chef moment coming along try whipping up with caramelized onion and goats cheese tart or twice cooked Szechuan pork belly. If that’s all sounding a bit too much effort try pairing with your next Thai, Indian or Chinese takeout!
