External Reviews for Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough New Zealand Cellar Selection
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.
Founded in 1961, Villa Maria Estate was opened by George Fistonich. Croatian by birth, Fistonich has built an icon of wine production in Auckland.
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.
