GOLD MEDAL | Global Sauvignon Blanc Masters 2023
EarthGarden is an exciting new range from Villa Maria with a focus on sustainable production, biodiversity and healthy soils. The wines are all organic and vegan and this new range is an important step in moving all Villa Maria vineyards to organic production by 2030.
This is Marlborough Sauvignon through and through. The palate is flooded with zesty citrus, lemongrass and passionfruit flavours and is complimented by generous mouthfeel and texture. Absolutely delicious.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Gorgeously styled and expressed with crunchy apple, fig, guava and lime zest aromas, it's succulent and wonderfully flavoursome in the mouth delivering excellent weight and intensity, finishing long and mouth-watering."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A noticeably floral bouquet with scents of white flowers then citrus fruits, white peach and soft gooseberry, finishing with a yellow appple and softer green herbs quality. Delicious on the palate with a satin texture then core flavours of citrus and white fleshed fruits, some tropical fruits layers and a crisp dry finish. The herbaceous flavours are of sage and fresh basil, a stony mineral and light saline quality adds breadth and length. Well made and ready to drink from 2022 through end of summer 2025."
The winery writes "Our EarthGarden Organic Sauvignon Blanc has lifted aromas of citrus fruits, lime and grapefruit that leap from the glass. The flavours on the palate showcase fresh herbs, lemongrass and passionfruit. The intense fresh fruit concentration is balanced with zesty acidity and is perfectly thirst-quenching."
