For me, over these last few gorgeous warm days we enjoyed, I was drawn to my fave once again,because I know in the winter months I tend to move onto other whites a little more. My fave of course is of course Sauvignon Blanc. So this week my wine pick is the Villa Maria Thornbury Sauvignon Blanc 2014 $18.95 (Prod # 734798) From guess where??? Marlborough, New Zealand.
For this wine the fruit comes from two vineyard areas of Marlborough, the Wairau and Awatere valleys, which sit side by side
This “dream blend” as winemaker Simon Fell calls it derives its richness and weight from the Wairau area while its finesse and minerality come from the cooler Awatere area.
Right on Mr Fell! I really enjoyed this Sauvignon Blanc, it delivered just like you said it would, crisp, lively, zesty and delicious with intense classic citrus, passion fruit and herbal notes, definitely got my taste buds salivating for something delish to munch on with my second, third fourth sips…
