Villa Maria Reserve Sauvignon Blanc Clifford Bay 2013

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

This medium-weight wine starts off with wonderfully pure, expressive aromas of ripe passion fruit. On the palate, it’s a bit prickly and leafy at first, like tomato stalks or nettle leaves. It then settles back down into tropical fruit on the long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now.

Plenty of fresh lemon, grapefruit zest and thyme notes emerge in this juicy, refreshing wine. Drink now.
