The wine displays the lovely Riesling characters of delicate citrus fruit, lemon and tantalising lime, with hints of seductive perfume and orange blossom. The wine has a fresh, yet harmonious palate, ensuring a perfect balance between intense fruit and crisp acidity in an off dry style. Great with or without food.

Villa Maria Cellar Selection Riesling 2008 is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Joanniex from Superior This wine is definitely a cut above the average. Rather expensive. Full of flavour, not to be glugged as it is very rich. It reminds you of the Spatlese style of German wines. In fact if you have a Riesling in Germany it is similar, the ones you cannot buy in England. An ideal wine for a treat or as a gift.
