According to Wine Enthusiast - In recent years, Villa’s Chardonnays have dominated the New Zealand show circuit, but this is a reminder that the company can make some darn good Sauvignon at a darn good price. Tomato leaf and white grapefruit aromas and flavors are the order of the day, easing into a long, mouthwatering finish. Rock solid.
According to Wine Searcher - Juicy and crisp, with herbal and fresh-cut grass notes mingling with the lemon, lime and grapefruit flavors. Finishes with a peppery accent. Drink now.
According to Wine Advocate - The 2013 Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc presents aromas of green apples, lemongrass and chopped herb notes with touches of bell peppers and pea pods. Medium-bodied with mouth-filling vegetal and herb flavors, it has a lively backbone of acid and a long is straightforward finish. Drink it now to 2015.
Tasting Notes - The nose of this wine is intense and freshly scented with an array of citrus, almond and honeysuckle characters. An approachable palate follows through leading to a delicate and dry styled finish with pleasing length. 13% ABV.
