From the bottle:
Grown between wild oceans, ancient river valleys and towering mountains, then bottled at our winery in the crater of a volcano, Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc is an iconic New Zealand wine. With the crack of the screw cap taste it for yourself as you unleash the essence of Marlborough and vibrant flavours of passionfruit and fresh kaffir lime.
Produced and Bottled by Villa Maria Estate LTD.
The 2021 Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc opens with all the aromas you would expect from Marlborough: grapefruit, tropical fruit, grass and a little green pepper. It's a very pleasing start.
Tasting the wine reveals it to be fresh, with crisp acidity, a vibrant mouthfeel and delicious depth on the fruit flavors which are similar to the nose. With some continuing notes of green pepper and good balance, this is a super nice example of Sauvignon Blanc.
It ends dry, crisp and long on the refreshing, lip-smacking finish. This is a nice wine to stock up on for warmer weather.
