Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Enjoy now and until 2011.
Pale bright yellow. Pungent aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass and gooseberry: classic Marlborough sauvignon. Concentrated, tactile and aromatic in the mouth, with firm acid backbone cutting the fruit sweetness. Finishes subtle and persistent. An excellent basic bottling.
The 2009 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc has more complexity on the nose than the regular Sauvignon Blanc bottling: a touch more of the Marlborough sub-tropical fruit complementing scents of gooseberry and Granny Smith. The palate is well balanced with vibrant apple and kiwi fruit flavors, then touches of passion fruit and peach towards the finish. This is a good value Kiwi Sauvignon and comes highly recommended.
