    They’re New Zealand’s most awarded and trusted winery so you can rest assure anything from Villa’s “Single Vineyard” range is pretty slick stuff. But their Villa Maria Single Vineyard Seddon Pinot Gris 2018 vintage is putting its hand up as New Zealand’s finest Pinot Gris right now.

    Announced as the No.1 NZ Pinot Gris in Cuisine magazine’s 2020 tasting ain’t a bad place to start, but the list of impressive gongs is building up for this seriously classy Gris…

    Don’t take our word for it – two of NZ’s top wine writers Bob Campbell (MW) and Michael Cooper gave this latest ’18 release the big thumbs up…

    “One of the country’s top Pinot Gris, this Awatere Valley wine is typically partly barrel-fermented…excellent weight and mouthfeel, vibrant pear, lychee and spice flavours, a vaguely toasty note adding complexity and a dryish finish. Best drinking 2020+.” (Michael Cooper)

    “Intense and appealing wine with ripe peach, pear, honeysuckle and apple flavours with a hint of lime zest…a pleasure to drink now but will continue to please for several years yet.” (Bob Campbell MW)

    As the label might suggest the fruit comes from, well, just one vineyard. The iconic Seddon Vineyard on the banks of Marlborough’s Awatere River.

    This is what Pinot Gris is all about. Treat yourself to one of the best money can buy. But do it while you can, a little birdie tells us there’s bugger all left of this great vintage…
