Villa Maria 2016 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc, $19.90
Sauvignon Blanc is best enjoyed when the flavours are young, fresh and vibrant, so pop this just-released wine into the fridge now. The most popular wine from New Zealand producer, Villa Maria, its ripe citrus flavours go nicely with seafood or salad. Winemaker Helen Morrison says the growing season was longer than usual but their patience was rewarded with extra concentrated fruit. The result: a rich melon flavour, with notes of passionfruit and lime for zing. Serve chilled on warm summer days.
