A delicious glassful, dry but a restrained taste of oak,not tannic at all. Should have bought more but will do so if still available.
Consistently pleasing and light on the palate.
Beautiful NZ wine! Light, fruity and with citrus tones, but not too dry. Great with food, or just as a gorgeous chilled Apéritif! Highly recommend.
Best of the Best
Probably one of the best white wines to buy. Sauvignon Blanc fro the south island of New Zealand Marlborough region - available in half bottles and full bottles.
Great depth of flavour and smooth finish at a reasonable price.
Excellent easy drinking wine, perfect for the summer.
Love their Sauvignon Blanc but can't say the same about this. Very bland and boring. Anyone like four other bottles, or I'll just give them away.
Often, a lower priced Chardonnay can be a bit harsh. This is certainly not the case with Villa Maria Private Bin Chardonnay. A smooth wine that goes well with chicken, fish and seafood.
Disappointing . Villa Maria Chardonnay 2013
I have had this Chardonnay in previous years and it has been delicious. I regularly check to see if it is on offer, as the usual price - £10/£11 - per bottle is an indulgence. This offer was about £6+ a bottle. The wine is thin, without the richness that the previous years have had. Probably overpriced even with the offer. Other wines at a similar price are much more pleasant. NB. Star rating is more 2 1/2 - not quite a 3
Too much spritz, not enough flavour and certainly no structure. Even the flavours, pear and vanilla, taste manufactured. Drinkable but only just.
Very over priced for the quality, their sauvignon blanc is quite good this lets them down
