Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Cellar Selection 2010

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. Serving suggestions: Salmon, tomato, green bean and potato salad.

This is the second Sauvignon blanc I've had from Marlborough and man... All I can say is where has this wine been all my life? It's not quite as scrumptious as the other one I've tried, but I will definitely be buying this wine again. I can take full sips instead of just taking a tiny bit into my mouth because I don't like it. It's for sure worth every penny you spend on the bottle. It's dry, crisp, very fruity with a hint of green apples, honeydew, and grapefruit. Tastes wonderful on the tongue and the taste lasts in your mouth for a long time.

A great example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with typical ripe tropical-citrus fruit, zippy acidity and smoky, peppery flavors. Enjoy this with well-seasoned chicken, pork or fish dishes, especially if they're a little spicy.
