Villa Maria Reserve Wairau Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

A classic Wairau Valley style bursting with the trademark ripe fruit characters found in this sub region. The nose displays pure and powerful aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit, blackcurrant, and underlying subtle flinty tones. The palate is concentrated with an enticing array of ripe gooseberry and guava flavours, naturally complemented by a fine thread of acidity and a long finish.

Quite crisp and tight on the nose with a citrussy edge to the grassy fruit. Rich, concentrated palate has a minerally edge to the rounded fruit. Needs a while to open out. Very good/excellent

Fruchtige Nase von Passionsfrucht, Grapefruit. Im Gaumen kräftig und stechend mit Aromen von reifen Stachelbeeren und tropischen Früchten mit einer frischen Säure und einem langen Abgang.
