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

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.
David Williams - The Observer Magazine 01/09/2013
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."
Villa Maria was founded in 1961 and is today regarded as one of New Zealand's leading winemakers. This family owned business has the accolade of making the most award winning wines in New Zealand.
