2010 Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc, Private Bin


Marlborough, New Zealand / $13-$15 Retail


This Sauvignon Blanc is intensely aromatic and flavorful. The cold-fermented wine exudes citrus, tropical fruit and herbaceous aromas. On the palate, it offers lime zest, melon, kiwi and passion fruit flavors with nuanced minerality and a crisp finish. Drink it as an aperitif or with grilled vegetables, salads, seafood, light meats and cheeses, and Asian dishes. Buy it at: Most Rouses, Robert Fresh Market in Lakeview, Dorignac's, Langenstein's and Breaux Mart in Metairie, Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket and The Fresh Market in Mandeville. Drink it at: Stella! and the Hungry Forager. — Brenda Maitland
