Wine: Villa Maria 2013 Single Vineyard Templar Sauvignon Blanc
Awarded: Elite Gold (2014)
Notes: It’s fantastic to see one of NZ’s wine giants making meaningful investments into organic wine making. The 2013 Templar Sauvignon provides Villa Maria with the pay-off for these efforts. A fantastic crisp Sav, which meets and exceeds all traditional Sauvignon expectations. Strong aroma’s of citrus with passion fruit coming through in the taste whilst also adding layers of complexity only found in organic varieties. Drinking perfectly now especially if you like a strong citrus crisp, but will keep for 1-2 years. Only 500 cases produced, so our advice is to jump on this, and keep an eye out for the 2014!
