Villa Maria Private Bin 2011 Marlborough New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, $11.04-$15.99, 86 points, is quite clear with a gray hue, and has aromas of grapefruit, a hint of cut grass and tomato.
The light body carries good acidity and follows the aroma onto the palate. It is dry with just a hint of sweetness. The finish is fair with just a slight sour note. This New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing, although it is a touch thin.
The tomatoes in the photograph reflects the recurring flavor I've been getting in a number wines lately.
Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Cellar Selection is a much better choice, though keep in mind that's reflected in the higher price; last purchased for $13.59-$18.99.
