Villa Maria Private Bin ‫Sauvignon Blanc 2014 Marlboro, New Zealand

image

My Rating 78 Points. 
Price $11.

Pale lemon in color.

Beautiful nose of tropical fruits, melons, lemons, minerals, apples, passion fruit, citrus and oranges.

Full bodied and crisp with high acidity.

Tart and dry on the palate with grapefruits, limes, green apples and grass.

Medium Plus on the finish with limes and bitter almonds.

This is a good food wine, yet too tart to have it by itself.

I really liked the nose on it, but the palate was very simple.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

  1. It was recently on sale here so I picked up a couple bottles for a BBQ I was having. After a glass I decided to splurge and open Kim Crawford’s Spitfire. I tasted it and was terribly confused. Which did I pour? Sure enough, I had other guests taste test. Slight difference in finish and body but nearly identical. I was shocked and plan to write about that.
