Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Private Bin

Winemaker's Notes:

This 2016 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc encompasses everything fresh and vibrant about Marlborough. Sauvignon Blanc. From the Awatere Valley comes aromatics and flavours such as lemongrass, jalapeno and fresh herbs as well as natural fresh acidity, due to the cooler climate influenced by Mt Tapuae-o-uenuku, cool alpine winds flowing down the valley as well the cooling ocean breezes. In contrast, the Wairau Valley has warmer summer months, with dry nor-westerly winds influencing the vineyards producing pungent Sauvignon Blanc with ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavours.
