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 2020 is another exceptional release from a stellar vintage. It has amazing purity of stone fruit, 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 Buttered popcorn, crusty toasted sourdough with smoky, flinty burnt match aromas with a touch of hazelnut. The more you swirl the glass, aromas of ripe stone fruits merge giving way to apple tart, nougat, and cinnamon notes too. Very complete.

Tastes

Intensely concentrated and layered on the palate, a classic Villa Maria style that has richness yet restraint, a fruity vein, yet strikingly complex. They manage to capture these contrasting characteristics perfectly every time. Combining the fruitiness, complexity and a creamy texture all laced together by a crystalline acid thread. Absolutely delicious. Sensational Chardonnay that takes its place among the great Hawke's Bay wines we’ve tasted. Serve with your favourite white protein
