Villa Maria Reserve Wairau Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Glossy lemon gold. Ravishingly pungent with the unmistakable aroma of this variety that is so famous in New Zealand – there's a lovely fumé (smoky) note to the bouquet with passionfruit, pineapple, tropical fruit and a herbaceous zing that carries through to the juicy palate where fleshy stonefruit joins the fruity array. Soft, almost oily in texture, finishing with a zesty mandarin zing and a lingering herbaceous pungency. This is really yummy SB in my opinion and many non SB drinkers in the room thought so too. Great stuff.
