Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2009 Wine Review
Herbal fusion with lime, chives and lemon zest. Very refreshing. This Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc 2009 was reviewed by November 6, 2010 Natalie MacLean
More Wine Reviews and Ratings
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: I've tried the 2009 and 2010 Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc and found the quality consistent between vintages. The signature aromas of grapefruit, lemon and asparagus are prominent in this Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It has a long crisp finish of grapefruit and citrus which means this wine should always be served well chilled. I paired this wine with Jarlsberg cheese.
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review: Given its reasonable price and reasonable taste, what's in Villa Maria's private bin makes a good house wine. Lynne found it a bit tinny, but that's because she brushed her teeth prior to our tasting. (The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals have yet to find a wine that pairs well with toothpaste.)
Rick Barr rated this wine as 75/100 with the following review: Good
Tom Lewis reviewed this wine as follows: In the glass it is almost colourless with just a hint of gold. There is an intense nose of gooseberry, passionfruit and a distinct hint of Galia melon skin. The palate has all the up-front herbaceous, nettley aromas I have come to expect with melon, citrus and lots of mouthwateringly ripe, juicy, tropical fruit acidity. The finish shows a balance of acidity, residual sweetness and minerality -presumably the result of the grapes being picked at differing levels of ripeness over a period of five weeks, giving both high acidity at one end and ripe sweetness at the other. It feels clean, well-made, approachable and familiar and, if you're new to kiwi Sauvignon, this is as good a place as any to start.
