I love crisp New Zealand sauvignons and Villa Maria has an excellent track record in producing easy to drink, good value wines.
This 2013 sauvignon is on the Private Bin label and does have a little more depth than the 'standard' sauvignon blanc. It is light, fruity and zesty, very lemony when you first taste it but becomes more rounded in the mouth and ends with a good dose of passionfruit.
The 2013 is drinking well now so chill it down and enjoy with seafood, white fish or even chicken.
You can buy it from wine.com here.It's only $12.99 right now and you can also get another $10 off an order of $150 with the wine.com coupon code of AUGUST10.
Oh, and did you know that Amazon has a reasonable stock of wines? Yes it's true! The everything store now sells wine. Amazon has a small number of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs on offer and probably the best one right now is the Mission Estate Hawkes Bay 2013 Sauvignon Blanc.
