Villa Maria only produce their reserve level wines in the best vintages. These wines receive VIP treatment from vineyard to bottle, and are highly sought after by wine enthusiasts world-wide.

Villa Maria Reserve Clifford Bay is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Awatere Valley of Marlborough, in areas benefiting from Clifford Bay’s cooling influence. Destemmed fruit was crushed and pressed before cold settling. The clear racked juice was inoculated with selected aromatic yeast strains. Cool, slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks took place to retain distinctive sub-regional and varietal characteristics. A classic example of a concentrated and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc displaying powerful aromas of blackcurrants, wild nettles, snow peas and fresh grapefruit. A flavour explosion on the palate with fresh rosemary, thyme and subtle juicy rock melon with a refreshing mineral, flinty finish.

    Description

    Villa Maria’s 60 year journey at the forefront of New Zealand’s wine industry has shaped the company as it stands today. Our extensive portfolio is one the most geographically and stylistically diverse and highly-awarded range of premium wines by any New Zealand producer, fuelling consumer adoration and success across the globe.

    Throughout the 1960s Villa Maria was a one-man band. In 1961, at just 21 years of age, Sir George Fistonich leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. The first wine under the name Villa Maria in 1962 was made with grapes harvested from this block. Today, Villa Maria is a globally recognised and adored for its bold, expressive and exceptional New Zealand wines.

    The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve Clifford Bay offers up all the classic vibrant green and silver notes of the cooler, windy Awatere Valley in Marlborough. It's a buoyant style bursting with pure gooseberry, elderflower, garden pea and honeysuckle flavors, but there are also tangy notes reminiscent of jalapeños bringing additional interest. The palate offers decent concentration, and the finish is firm with crisp acidity powering the wine home. Drink young for its aromatic intrigue.
