Wine tasting notes

Capturing the essence of Marlborough, this Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of selective vineyards from both the Wairau and Awatere valleys. Pungent tropical aromas lead into a juicy palate bursting with zesty grapefruit and rock-melon but finishing with flavours of fresh herbs and grassy nettles.

Winery information

Villa Maria

It is not easy to tell your Dad that you are quitting a career in carpentry to try your hand at making wine. But in 1961, at the age of 21, that's exactly what Sir George Fistonich did. He leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name 'Villa Maria' which he chose because his friends thought it sounded European. Since those first cuttings took hold in the soil out in Mangere, near Auckland, Sir George has been determined to be at the cutting edge of quality winegrowing.

Vinification notes

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes destined for this Cellar Selection wine were harvested in cool night temperatures to protect the aromatics. Clear juice is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks using selected aromatic yeast strains. The wine is left to mature on yeast lees for a period of time to build palate weight and texture into the wine, without compromising freshness.
