I would not normally choose a Sauvignon Blanc as I much prefer a Rosé wine but was asked to try the Waitrose Sauvignon Blanc, Villa Maria in the classic Marlborough style with 12% volume.
I had difficulty opening the bottle as the screw top would not separate from the bottom part which just kept turning round and round. Once I had managed to get over that hurdle and get the bottle open I was in for a pleasant surprise.
The wine was very crisp and fresh, not too dry, but I could not work out what fruit it was made from. I did keep trying though!!
A very palatable white wine indeed!!
It says on the label ‘equally delicious as an aperitif or with asparagus, fish or chicken.’ To be honest if I like a wine I will drink it with anything I fancy, I do not stick to white for fish or red for beef etc…
I can thoroughly recommend this wine as it is an excellent Sauvignon Blanc.
Available to buy from Waitrose here.
