Food Pairings for Villa Maria Priv Bin Sauvignon Blanc
For me, this is a quintescential New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Has aromas of ripe gooseberry and citrus blossoms tinged with tropical fruits. On the palate it is lithe and lovely with zingy acidity. Really a fine spring or summer wine that would be great in the pic nic basket.
Pale yellow-green colour, beatiful aromatics, ripe exotic fruit, like physalys, with hint of spice and interesting minerality. Full, peach and lime juice, apricot, mango ( basically all the exotic fruit that comes into mind). Medium to Long aftertaste, herbal, citric, pepery, with overall sweet fruit impresions. Overall: Fresh&crispy with impresive aroma complexity:87 pct.
External Reviews for Villa Maria Priv Bin Sauvignon Blanc
This workhorse NZ Savvy delivers just what you'd expect: an initial blast of pungent herbal and passion fruit scents, followed by bright tropical fruit on the palate and a crisp, clean finish. Good value.
Distinctively Marlborough, bursting with passion fruit, ripe gooseberry and hints of herbaceous nuances. A well-balanced, fresh, invigorating palate with a crisp, zesty finish.
Bright and tart, with gooseberry, mint and grapefruit notes mingling on the lively palate. Drink now.
Bright and juicy, with lively acidity against nectarine and lime flavors that persist into the zingy finish. Drink now.
Musky aromas of smoke and herbs, with a light vegetal aspect. Round, ripe and easygoing, with apple and pear flavors complicated by varietal vegetal notes. Soft and approachable sauvignon.
Polished style, light and pretty, with citrus and tropical fruit notes that ride nicely over the top. Drink now.
Blends grapefruit and green pepper aromas and flavors in a rich, viscous wine that strikes a nice balance between fruity and herbal. Seems to have just a bit of sugar in it, but finishes tangy and fresh, with vivacious acids.
Since George Fistonich founded Villa Maria in 1961, it has grown in reputation to become New Zealand's most successful privately owned winery and maker of New Zealand's most awarded wines. Many respected wine writers and critics support this statement; The new Sotheby's Wine Encylopedia stated of Villa Maria "Probably the best all round producer in New Zealand. Villa Maria has a vast array of wines, yet they are all beautifully crafted to enhance fruit and finesse.... if the quality is super, the consistency is supernatural". This success has been achieved through the Villa Maria team's total commitment to the quality of its varietal wines which is continuously rewarded in national and international wine competitions. This vibrant Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with a fruit-salad-bowl of flavours including ripe gooseberry, passionfruit, fresh citrus lime and exotic herbaceous aromas. The wine has an exciting palate with layers of juicy flavours, intensity and fullness, finishing with a refreshing crisp, clean and racy acidity. Enjoy this exuberant and delightful wine with any number of light summer dishes, such as salmon or green bean and potato salad.
