Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough New Zealand Cellar Selection 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A beautifully intense and lively wine, overflowing with aromas of ripe gooseberry, melon and passionfruit with hints of grapefruit, lime and nettles. The wine is mouth-filling and juicy with vibrant fruit and fantastic mid palate richness and weight, finishing rich and racy with excellent length and crispness. Serve with salmon, tomato, green bean and potato salad.

Typical Sauvignon Blanc, but enjoyable. Crisp and refreshing with citrus and herbal notes.

This wine is a true expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, overflowing with aromas of passionfruit, lime and gooseberry. The wine is concentrated and juicy displaying vibrant grapefruit and nettle notes with fantastic mid-palate weight.

The 2011 Cellar Selection Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc gives intense notes of gooseberries capsicum and freshly mown grass with hints of grapefruit and orange peel. Medium bodied with a good suggestion of silkiness to the texture it offers mouth-filling flavors marked by crisp acidity and finishing long. Drink it now through 2013. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
