Villa Maria, Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc, 2020
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Wines crafted in our Villa Maria Single Vineyard range epitomize the varietal and the vintage as well as the uniqueness of the vineyard site. The 2019 Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc has lifted aromatics of fresh garden peas and blackcurrants mingled with herbs such as coriander. On the palate are concentrated flavours of jalapeño and lemongrass, with a punchy finish of lime zest and a hint of gunflint. A key point of interest in this wine is the chalky texture reminiscent of wet river stones. Perfect with seafood and south-east Asian flavours
Selective harvesting in cool night temperatures followed by 100% stainless steel fermentation with selected textural and aromatic yeasts then matured for a carefully monitored time on yeast lees to build palate weight and texture .
