localization of an enriched category

Given a symmetric closed monoidal category V, a V-enriched category A with underlying ordinary category A 0 and a subcategory Σ of A 0 containing the identities of A 0, H. Wolff defines the corresponding theory of localizations.

While Wolff in principle defines localizations more generally, most of the theory is developed for reflective localizations, i.e. when the counit of the 2-adjunction is iso of V-categories. For such a V-enriched category C,

consider reflective V-localizations which preserve finite limits of the enriched category of presheaves [C op,V], and relate them to an enriched version of Grothendieck topology on C, and to a “universal closure operation” on [C op,V].
