Villa Maria's Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is a full-bodied, grape-varietal white wine from the Marlborough - Clifford Bay wine region of New Zealand.
In the glass, this wine shines in a bright straw yellow color with greenish-golden shades. The bouquet reveals powerful aromas of currants, sugar peas and fresh, juicy lime, interspersed with exotic notes. Add fresh grass, balm and other fragrances of lemongrass. The explosive, concentrated, full-bodied palate of this New Zealand white wine delights with fleshy fruit, beautiful acidity and fine melting. This wine flows into a long, mineral and complex reverberation with fine acidity.
Vinification of Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Reserve
After harvesting the Sauvignon Blanc grapes, the harvested crop is vinified separately by parcel. Once in the wine cellar, the berries are gently pressed and the clear must is removed. The must is then fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. In order for this wine to retain its aromatic fullness and freshness, there is no wood contact.
Food recommendation for the reserve Sauvignon Blanc Villa Maria
We recommend this dry white wine from New Zealand with salads with feta, fried fish dishes, seafood, seasonal vegetable dishes and mild goat cheese.
