Famous for its Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, which has been called “the best in the world”.
New Zealand only has a short history of winemaking and produces less than 1% of the world’s wine. Yet its famous Sauvignon Blancs and Pinot Noirs are to be found in many wine shops and restaurants throughout the world, such is its quality.
Thanks to the cool temperature, New Zealand wine has a much longer ripening period. This leads to a much more intense flavour, as well as much more purity in the notes of the wine.
There is plenty of acidity to the New Zealand wine, but you’ll still get a lot of flavour.
New Zealand wine has found that balance between taste and freshness you can’t help but love!
New Zealand is famous for its Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, which has been called “the best in the world” by some wine critics.
At aeclub.com.my, Villa Maria offers two Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs – Private Bin and Taylors Pass.
Villa Maria Private Bin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc boasts of room-filling aromatics and strikingly crisp character.
The classy Taylors Pass Sauvignon Blanc features aromatics of gooseberry and passionfruit that lead into a pure and concentrated palate with snow pea, nettles and subtle minerality.
The aromatic Villa Maria Private Bin Pinot Noir has a lively personality. It expresses strawberries, raspberries and red cherries on the nose, the hallmarks of a classic Marlborough Pinot Noir. The ruby colour in the glass suggests juicy summer red fruits on the palate, intermingled with flavours of freshly roasted coffee beans and dark cocoa. Silky soft tannins and a hint of dried herbs linger on the finish.
Meanwhile, Escarpment Kiwa Pinot Noir is bottled without filtration, promoting soft mouth-feel and texture.
Similarly, Escarpment Te Rehua Pinot Noir has a soft mouth-feel. It has a unique complexity and texture combined with black cherry/plum fruit flavours.
