Description

While a lot of the talk these days is about Marlborough's Southern Valleys, the vast majority of the oldest vines and plantings are in the Wairau Valley. It's heartland Marlborough, and the Villa Maria Reserve Wairau Sauvignon Blanc showcases the old vine quality nicely. A Sauvignon with a pronounced mineral streak, perhaps a result of the alluvial soils, this latest release is another stunner for summer.

Smells

Minerality, citrus and tropical fruits, with a hint of green apple and passionflower.

Tastes

Precise, pure and very clean, there is good grip and persistence on the palate, finishing fresh and mouth-watering. A high end take on a classic style, this wine will be on peak form between now and 2020.
