Back again today with publication #2 of I Live Italian new periodic series Wine on Wednesday.
I’d like to redirect you to wine on Wednesday #1 for the few words describing what are we trying to accomplish with this series.
Here is then our little game “what do you smell and what do you taste” focused on
VILLA MARIA, Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Villa Maria is a quite affirmed Sauvignon Blanc produced from vineyards across the Marlborough region in New Zealand. In my opinion a really good wine very compatible with seafood and white meat. Suggested, as every Sauvignon, with Thai Food.
To the eye: light pale color with some green reflex
To the nose: the first fruits you can distinguish is the grapefruit then passion fruit with intense smell of lime. If really chilled some pear notes emerge.
To the mouth: lime and lemon grass as well as other light citrusy flavors are the main and dominant notes together with an intense minerality on the palate.
To the tongue: light to medium body with a refreshing aftertaste.
We found it at our local Vons, where the wine selection is definitely extended. For a reasonable price varying from $8,99 to $12,99 Villa Maria is taking a spot in our favorite white wine options.
Drink and enjoy responsibly but don’t forget to leave a comment telling us what you think about it, see you soon!
