Very fruity, with strong apple and kiwi. More fruity than I usually enjoy, but a VERY pleasant and enjoyable wine. I have learned to love the Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blancs.
You'll know that you have something rather good as soon as you open the bottle. Savour the nose before tasting. My Doc has said no more than 2 bottles per week. (Down from 3.5) Damn difficult to restrict myself to 250ml per day of this one. Easily worth around £9. As i write Tesco has it on at £4.75.

Wonderful grassy dry and refreshing. Great with sweet desserts.
Good value from Marlborough. Great with spicy prawns, or any crab.
Great Sauvignon Blanc, very typical of Marlborough County! Nice floral bouquet and citrusy taste with some acidity and minerality.
External Reviews for Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Private Bin
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.
