Villa Maria Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2021

A classic representation of Sauvignon Blanc from the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, bursting with aromatic tropical fruit characters found in this warmer sub-region.  This wine displays powerful aromas of blackcurrant, passionfruit and ripe rock-melon. The palate has an enticing array of ripe citrus fruits mixed with pungent herbs such as fresh rosemary, finishing with subtle acidity. The later ripering of the Laugesson vineyard in the Upper Waihopai Valley plays a key part of this wine contributing the pungent ripe passionfruits aroma's and tropical fruit flavors, whereas the Hocquard vineyard in the Lower Wairau Valley adds freshness and greener thiols, such as boxwood.
