Sip: Villa Maria Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc ’14

It’s starting to feel a lot like winter and while you might want to head straight for the red section there are many ways to enjoy white wines throughout the cold season!

For today’s Wine Wednesday we wanted to add in a bit of food and paired a hearty fish chowder, with fresh caught snapper, (which you can’t beat) and a bright and crisp Sauvignon Blanc. This is a match made in heaven. The Sauvignon Blanc pairs nicely with the fish, bringing out the earthy flavours and accentuating the creaminess of both the wine and the broth.

Here is the delicious Villa Maria Reserve Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014 and a ‘chowda’ recipe to make your own Wednesday night one to remember!

Fish Chowder 1

Villa Maria Clifford Bay Sauvignon Blanc

This wine takes the chill away from winter with its lush aromatics dreaming of fresh pineapple and tropical fruit dancing with lime, take you a million miles away.

Distinctive yet entirely appealing, it lures you with its round fresh fruit, a crisp underlying minerality and a personality that is warm, lively and jovial.
