Villa Maria Lightly Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc 2011
With the plethora of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc on our shores and, let’s face it, globally, we have long been expecting innovation from the Kiwis to keep this category alive & driving forward. This is but one of the ways they are seeking to do it & to fight the growing popularity of Moscato at the same time.
By leaving just a light fizz in the wine balanced by a hint of almost imperceptible sweetness, you can now have your Marlborough Savvy fix with a lighter personality. There is still that passionfruit, lime & melon fruit salad with the typical Sauvignon Blanc herbaceousness. The fizz gives the fruit just that little bit of an extra lift. If you love your Marlborough Savvy, then this one is your new summer drink.
