Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon blanc races and dazzles its way across your palate. Traditionally characterized to portray flavours of fresh cut grass, grapefruit, asparagus, and gooseberry, this bright varietal boasts heritage in the old world, but like any spirited child, it found its wings growing in many places around the world. This year’s clear winner hails from one of New Zealand’s leading wine makers. The Villa Maria is crisp and fruity. Notes of zesty lime and passionfruit shine through. The nose is a mirror of the palate with candied and tropical fruit as the stars. Refreshing acidity leaves you reaching for another glass, and wishing that summer never had to come to an end.
