Description

Yet again, this Villa Maria Cellar Selection continues to make a mockery of its price, easily our pick for the best sub-$15 Chardonnay in New Zealand, and it wouldn't be far off the best sub-$20 one! The key as usual is Villa Maria's fruit resources, including famous vineyards like Keltern that pop up in the blend. It's 100% barrel fermented with around 20% new French oak. the sort of stats you'd see on a $30 Reserve Chardonnay. If Chardonnay is your go-to white wine, and you haven't tasted this. you need a dozen, tout suite!

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 with a kiss of French oak. 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 2022+.
