    Winemaker's Notes:

    A beautifully intense and lively wine, overflowing with aromas of ripe gooseberry, melon and passionfruit with hints of grapefruit, lime and nettles. The wine is mouth-filling and juicy with vibrant fruit and fantastic mid palate richness and weight, finishing rich and racy with excellent length and crispness. Enjoy now and until 2012.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Typical Villa Maria, with that extra dimension of aroma and varietal flavour common to all its wines; tropical notes of passionfruit marry with ripe citrus and gooseberry fruit flavours, the finish long and balanced.

    Australian Wine Companion

    Refreshing and vibrant, offering tangerine and lime-tinged nectarine and green apple flavors that keep sailing through the long, generous and lively finish. Drink now. 500 cases imported.

    Villa Maria is terrific - Light, crisp, juicy to the last drop. Enjoyed the first bottle with baked flounder and a hearty salad. Second bottle - all by itself -- (not on the same day). Will buy this again. Great buy for $20.

    We like all the Marlborough County New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, citrus-y gooseberry lime and grapefruit notes and all. Villa Maria's Cellar Selection is one step up from there. Excellent.

    This is probably the best sub $20 bottle of white I have had. Very fruity with complex flavor and fragrance, and yet not a bit of sweetness. The signature New Zealand SB passion fruit taste is actually on the lighter side because the other flavors are very rich and complex. Nice woody/grassy over tone, mixed with guava, passionfruit, kiwi, citrus, and cranberries. Ordering the third time.
