Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2022
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough, Wairau Valley|
"Aromatic nose of green apples, passion fruit, guava and nettles. Tropical, bright and crunchy, with a medium body and creamy texture. Rich and fruity finish. Sustainable. Drink now. Screw cap." James Suckling 90 points Drink 2023+
The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve Wairau Valley is a rounded, smoothly textured style with pear, melon and passionfruit flavors. It's balanced and its concentration marks this out as a step up in quality from a slugging Sauvignon, but feels rather one dimensional.
