Label for Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Marlborough

Product Details

Tasting Notes

A seriously good Sauvignon from one of New Zealand's top producers, this is from a single vineyard in the Awatere Valley.

Incredibly pure and complex, with layers of lime, gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours.

Mouthwateringly good, especially with goats cheese.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 5 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, The Wine Gang said: Terrific varietal intensity, but beautifully modulated so that it comes singing rather than shouting. Ripe green fruit and nettle freshness, a touch of lime zest, supple texture and long, refreshing, briny finish.

The Wine Gang - www.thewinegang.com 01/06/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, David Williams said: "One of the high street's most familiar names, Villa Maria is a family-owned producer that is a model of consistency across a large range of wines. From a single-vineyard this is a genuine step up in quality from your average Kiwi sauvignon. It fairly shimmers and dazzles with its nettly greeness and fluency."

David Williams - The Observer Magazine 01/09/2013
