Overview

Grape

Syrah

Its Origins

In 1961, at just 21 years of age, George Fistonich leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. He harvested his first grapes in 1962 and made his first wine under the name Villa Maria. Throughout the 1960s Villa Maria was a one-man band, with George’s wife, Gail, supporting him in his venture. He made dry red and white wines, sourcing grapes from the greater Auckland regions. In the early 1970s he started to employ staff and the company began to expand rapidly. Today, Villa Maria employs more than 250 permanent staff and exports wine to over 50 countries worldwide.

What The Critics Say

94/100 Bob Campbell Mw (2018 vintage)

"Deliciously accessible syrah with floral, violet, raspberry, plum, pepper and spicy oak flavours. An elegant rather than blockbuster style with delicacy and poise. Good now - why wait? 28 JAN 2020." Drink 2020 - 2024.

Overall Trophy for Champion Wine in Show, NZ Wine of the Year Awards 2019 (2018 vintage)

"Perfectly ripened Hawkes Bay Syrah has a captivating fragrance and should be varietally distinctive and hard to confuse with anything else. Deep in colour, wonderfully perfumed, laden with dark berries and spices, yet supple and silk-like in texture.”
