    Rest assure anything from Villa Maria’s Reserve range is usually pretty slick stuff. So it’s no suprise to see their 2014 Reserve Clifford Bay Sauvy rein in an impressive haul of awards – 5 Stars & Top 10 in Cuisine magazine, high scores from Masters of Wine Michael Cooper and Bob Campbell, plus Golds and Silvers a plenty.

    Produced from selected vineyards in the Awatere Valley using high quality fruit and a meticulous attention to detail that this label deserves, in the words of the winemaker this is a "flavour explosion on the palate…fresh rosemary, thyme…with a refreshing mineral, flinty finish."

    It got the big nod of approval from Bob Campbell ("weighty wine with impressive underlying power and a very lengthy finish") and Michael Cooper ("this is an exceptional Marlborough wine").

    Awatere Valley Sauvignon with a step up in class. Drink now to 2017.
