Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2020
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
This wine showcases the youthful, fresh and vibrant characteristics of Marlborough. Initially, the cool climate Awatere aromas jump out of the glass, such as lemongrass, jalapeño peppers and fresh herbs. In contrast, the Wairau Valley has warmer summer months, influencing vineyards to produce a pungent Sauvignon Blanc with ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Perfect aperitif wine, serve chilled on warm summer days. Fresh herbal flavors match well with most salads, whereas the riper tropical flavors match well with any fish recipes.
A gentle Sauvignon Blanc that offers plenty of tenderness. This ripe and round expression offers a dialed-down aromatic expression of Marlborough with its subtle melon, passion fruit and sweet pea. Modest concentration and a brief finish.
