Leading Lights and Walk-overs

NZ wines rate highly in Tim Atkin’s list of ‘summer corkers’ at their peak of drinkability. 2002 Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc: “I’ve never tasted a better vintage of this intense, guava, gooseberry and mango-like South Island white from one of NZ’s leading lights.” 2002 Isabel Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc: “My favourite NZ SB, this one walks all over Cloudy Bay.”
