Villa Maria - Reserve Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018New Zealand Wine
This wine is a pure example of concentrated Sauvignon Blanc displaying intense aromas of currant leaf, gooseberry and fresh lime intertwined with exotic herb notes.
An explosive, concentrated palate gives way to a long mineral and steely finish.
100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Located in Marlborough's cooler Awatere Valley, Clifford Bay's climatic influence plays a significant role in the varietal flavours of the selected vineyards.
Hand harvested bunches were destemmed and crushed. For maturation, the juice was then left on the lees for two months until it was racked to ferment in a tank. Subsequently, the resulting wine was gently fined out and filtered before bottling.
