Winery Tasting Notes


A pure expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, overflowing with aromas of passionfruit, citrus, lime and gooseberry.


The wine is concentrated and juicy displaying vibrant grapefruit and nettle notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, finishing with a crisp line of acidity.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy now and until 2013.

Food Matching

Fresh pan fried scallops or fish and grilled seasonal vegetables.

Winemaking Note

Each vineyard was harvested at optimum flavour ripeness and processed separately to provide the greatest number of blending options. A proportion of the vineyard parcels received skin contact in the winery to enhance the intensity of flavours, before the fruit was gently pressed, cold settled and racked for fermentation. Cool fermentation techniques were used to retain purity of flavour and aromatics. After fermentation the wines remained on yeast lees for several months to build mouthfeel. The wine was then racked and blended, gently fined, filtered and immediately bottled, capturing purity of flavour, freshness and richness.

Founded in 1961 by current owner and Managing Director, George Fistonich, Villa Maria is a privately owned winery.

Villa Maria produces New Zealand's most awarded wines and has achieved acclaim, both nationally and internationally since the early 1980's.  This outstanding achievement is due to an uncompromising commitment and dedication to quality at all stages of the grape growing and winemaking processes.

Villa Maria sources grapes from each of New Zealand's premium grape growing regions: Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and produces wines in two state of the art wineries situated in Marlborough and Auckland. Villa Maria was the first major wine company in New Zealand to seal their wines with screwcaps, ensuring their wine reaches the consumer just as the winemaker intended.
