Last year's Champion Wine of the Show, has just nabbed another THREE Trophies again at this year's Hawke's Bay Wine Awards. Sadly, stocks won't allow for a hattrick so grab what you can at this incredible price and enjoy watching this show-stopper unfold over time.

It's no surprise really as it has long been one of our greatest award winning Chardonnay. Made by the talented team at NZ's Most Awarded Winery, using a blend of fruit from Hawke's Bay's finest vineyards - including the famed Keltern block! And of course, they use all the best resources to craft this superb wine - it's completely whole bunch pressed, 100% barrique fermented, with ten months in French Oak - over a third of which was brand new barrels ... no expense has been spared!

And the results are sublime! An intense concentration of pure stonefruit, layered with fresh grapefruit and a touch of flint, smothered with lashings of buttercream and biscuit flavours that trail on forever with a lingering finish.

This is sensational Chardonnay, a truly sublime wine experience guaranteed to leave you smiling. It will impress friends and family over the festive season, make a lasting impression as a gift, and of course be a fantastic addition to your cellar collection, gracefully unfolding over the next seven to ten years.

You'll find this wine elsewhere for up to $39.99. But grab what you can of this end of an era Champion Chardonnay, at our gob-smacking price of just $29.99.

Villa Maria's Hawke's Bay wines are on a roll. Their 2019 Reserve Chardonnay winning Champion Wine of Show at the Hawkes Bay Wine Awards, is just another feather in an already overloaded cap! 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 2019 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!


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


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. Serve with your favourite white protein.
