Villa Maria Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2018

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.

Villa Maria Cellar Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2018

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.
Vineyard
Vineyard blocks from the warmer Wairau Valley are chosen
to express concentrated riper tropical Sauvignon Blanc
notes, whereas the cooler windier Awatere Valley takes
longer to ripen producing dominant herbal and bell pepper
characters.
Winemaking
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.
Vintages
The 2018 growing season started with an excellent spring and a strong flowering period which
was followed by a long spell of hot weather with regular rainfall events through the summer
months. With ample soil moisture, our harvest started earlier than the previous two vintages,
luckily the cooler autumn weather helped retain natural acidities as the season progressed.
Despite the challenges in the season due to intermittent rainfall events, the Marlborough winery
team are delighted with the quality and flavours of the wines this year.
