Villa Maria

Villa Maria R & D 'No 0995' 2010 Pinot Gris Gewurztraminer Viognier 13.5%
Each sniff of this wine reveals the next variety listed on the label - starts with the white fleshed signature of Gris, then the spicy rose scents of Gewurz and finishes with the apricot and peach voice of Viognier - so fruity and lush bouquet. On the palate - very fruity at first then a generous warmth envelops the palate with the viognier speaking up  first - juicy sweet apricots and spice; some tropical lychee and spice of Gewurz and juicy sweet moments from the Gris. A lovely playful wine where the blend works and balance is perfect. Medium+ acidity, lots of charm and personality.
4.5 Stars
