Introduction It is not easy to tell your Dad that you are quitting a career in carpentry to try your hand at making wine. But in 1961, at the age of 21, that's exactly what Sir George Fistonich did. He leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name 'Villa Maria' which he chose because his friends thought it sounded European. Since those first cuttings took hold in the soil out in Mangere, near Auckland, Sir George has… Read more

James Suckling (JS) : 90 Points (2019)
A very succulent, fresh and rich style that has sweet, passion-fruit and mango flavors in fresh, soft mode.

Decanter (DCT) : 90 Points (2018)
Cut grass, red capsicum, passion fruit and lime cordial aromas and flavors supported a lovely round and creamy texture.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2016)
A consistent standard-bearer for the variety as expressed in Marlborough, the 2016 Private Bin boasts ample red currant and pink grapefruit aromas and flavors, perked up by a touch of leafiness. It's medium-bodied and perhaps a bit rounder and softer in the mouth than some, but finishes dry and stony. Best Buy

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 91 Points (2015)
A blend of grapes from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. One of the first examples of 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I have tasted. If it is typical of the vintage then it appears to have been an excellent year. A smaller than usual crop might explain greater than usual concentration in this wine. Citrus, grapefruit, melon and a hint of passion fruit supported by juicy acidity. Good value at this price. (7/2015)

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2015)
Light and crisp, with tangy lime, melon and peach flavors that are succulent and smooth, finishing juicy, with plenty of focus and intensity. Drink now. (7/2016)

This classy Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted aromatics of gooseberry and passionfruit lead into a pure and concentrated palate with snow pea, nettles and subtle minerality.

Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2019
Cloudy Bay Te Koko 2019
Cloudy Bay Te Koko is an individual expression of the sauvignon blanc grape, a complex and savoury wine that is both deliciously aromatic and richly textured. Released as a mature wine, it is a full-bodied, alternative style of sauvignon blanc from Cloudy Bay.
