Reviews and Ratings

Villa Maria's Taylors Pass 2018 is a single-vineyard, sustainably-grown Sauvignon Blanc. Fresh on the nose with green leaf, pea flower, pineapple and citrus meringue aromas on the nose. Dry, vibrant with fine herbs, green pea, grapefruit, lime zest finishing flinty, spicy and long on the palate. Something different and enjoyable. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
