Tasting - "Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc"
Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: New Zealand
Price: $18 regular / $9.95 close-out sale
Winery Review: A classy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with piercing aromas of ripe gooseberries and intense lime and passionfruit flavours. The wine was made from a blend of fruit grown in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys spanning a range of different climates. Would be an ideal match with a herbed salmon dish.
My Review: This wine had a very light yellow color. It had a nice clean nose. It had little flavor. There was not too much to this wine.
