2016 Villa Maria Cellar Selection Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

The finest sub $15 Chardonnay - Double Gold Medal stunner!

Gold FWDC 93/100

Description

Fruit from select Hawkes Bay Single Estates including the famed Keltern vineyard is 100% barrel fermented with 20% new French oak. it sounds like a recipe for a $30 Reserve Chardonnay and many Hawkes Bay producers would love to have it as their leading estate release. 2016 was another magnificent vintage, for Chardonnay surpassing the multi award winning 2014 in terms of its deliciousness, fruit purity and harmony! There is little doubt at FWD Co. this is Chardonnay without peer at our price.

Smells

Enticing mix of stone fruit, buttered toast, cashew nut and pastry aromas.

Tastes

Gorgeously creamy entry into the mouth releasing tasty peach/nectarine fruits. Seductive hazelnut butter, toast and fresh pastry complexities continually evolve throughout the palate and culminate in a luscious subtle lemon tinged finish. Peerless enjoyment for the price, it's a heady time to be a Chardonnay drinker in NZ when you can drink so well for so little. Enjoy with creamy pasta dishes, roast pork or poultry or just enjoy by itself now through 2020.
