Wine tasting notes

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.

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.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2019) - 91 pts

Hints of green tomato and bell pepper appear on the nose of the 2019 Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc. Thankfully, those are backed by a solid core of stone fruit and grapefruit, providing a sense of balanced ripeness to this medium-bodied offering. There's a plush silkiness to the texture on the palate and a lingering, vibrant, citrusy finish.
