Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"A single parcel of Albariño was handpicked from a small area of vines within the Joseph Soler vineyard. They were gently pressed to a combination of stainless steel barrels and seasoned oak puncheon for fermentation. The resulting wine displays pure varietal characters of peach and lime, entwined with subtle mineral complexities on a complex, long and dry finish."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The classy 2016 vintage was mostly tank-fermented, but 25 per cent of the blend was fermented with indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak puncheons. A powerful, fresh, full-bodied wine, it is dry (2.2 grams/litre of residual sugar), with very vibrant flavours, showing excellent intensity, complexity and length."
John Saker, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Villa has been producing albariño, a white grape from northwestern Spain, since 2014, but this is the winery's first reserve level release with variety. It's delightful – crystalline purity, light apricot notes with a lovely thread of minerality. Albariño has been raising a few hopes around the country and it's starting to deliver on its early promise. Villa is backing it by planting more in both Gisborne and Hawke's Bay."
