Description

Villa Maria's Hawke's Bay wines are on a roll. Fresh from their Cellar Selection Syrah winning the New Zealand Wine of the Year, they have picked up the Winestate Wine of the Year, and it's easy to see why too! They have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to vineyards in the Hawke's Bay, from the Gimblett Gravels to cooler inland vineyards like the iconic Keltern. This gives Chief Winemaker Nick Picone an amazing array of blending options, and often this Villa Maria Hawke's Bay Reserve Chardonnay is the pick of the lot. The 2018 is another exceptional release from a stellar vintage. It has amazing purity of stonefruit, a kiss of flint and an amazing mealy, creamy finish that goes on for days. Expect it to win many many more gongs before the vintage is out!

Smells

Gorgeous hazelnut, vanilla, coconut, peach and toast, a hint of fresh grapefruit and nougat too. Very complete.

Tastes

Intensely concentrated and layered on the palate, the fresh grapefruit gives a stunning freshness, which is then smothered with a layer of butter cream and biscuit. The finish trails on long into the night, revealing yet more citrus and stonefruit nuances. Sensational Chardonnay that takes its place among the great Hawke's Bay wines we’ve tasted.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
