Villa Maria Reserve Wairau Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

100% Sauvignon Blanc from a combination of vineyards with varying soils and viticultural techniques throughout the Wairau Valley of Marlborough.

Fruit was destemmed, crushed, and pressed before cold settling. The clear racked juice was inoculated with selected aromatic yeast strains. Cool, slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks took place to retain distinctive sub-regional and varietal characteristics.

Winemaker's Comments

Harvested in the cool of night to retain maximum aromatic complexity, this wine is blended from premium vineyards in the warm Wairau Valley, and bursting with the trademark ripe fruit characters found in this sub-region. Fresh and zesty and then opulent and textured with dense tropical fruit.
