Villa Maria Cellar Selection Sauvignon Gris 2017
100% Sauvignon Gris hand-picked from the Fletcher Vineyard in the Wairau Valley of Marlborough.
Fruit was whole cluster pressed to allow delicate pure juice for fermentation. Grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with aromatic enhancing yeast strains at 16-18ºC to retain fruit purity.
Captivating aromas of citrus, nectarine and pineapple dominate, with a mineral wet stone undertone. The palate is textured exhibiting a medley of stonefruit and pear intertwined with a herbal nuance, a subtle sweet core and a fine-beaded acidity.

SILVER MEDAL - International Wine Challenge 2018
90 POINTS - Wine Anorak (Jamie Goode)
"A really unusual grape variety to work with: it tastes like Sauvignon Blanc in the vineyard but has pink/grey skins, and can be pushed ripe. 20% in barrel. Fourth year of this. Very rich and fruity with some pear and tangerine notes, some lemony brightness, but also a soft, almost creamy texture. Broad but fresh, this is really successful. A generous, fruity wine."
