Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 04/06/2016
Of the 2014 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "What's a sauvignon blanc doing in this section? Well, it's fabulously intense and with an extra year under its belt it has grown and billowed, giving more depth of citrus fruit and the power to romance fish curries."
In 1961, at the age of 21, Sir George Fistonich leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name 'Villa Maria'. Still 100% New Zealand and family owned, Villa Maria Estate has gone from strength to strength over the last 50 years and is now distributed in over 50 countries worldwide
Situated on the north-east coast of the South Island, Marlborough enjoys warm and sunny days, cooler nights and a long growing season. International demand for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has allowed the region's wine industry to blossom. The Marlborough region is split into two river valleys, the Wairau in the north and Awatere further south. The Wairau Valley has lower rainfall and cooler temperatures and the Awatere Valley soils are drier and less fertile, naturally minimising grape yield.
