Description

A sensational, library magnum release Villa Maria Reserve Hawkes Bay Chardonnay, with most of the fruit coming off the legendary Keltern vineyard. Keltern is renowned for its smoky, flinty complexities underpinning its beautifully fine ripe fruit, but with this special Library Release, a selection of the best barriques off the Ngakirikiri vineyard were added to the blend. At six years of age this Reserve Library Release is complex, toasty and undoubtedly among the finest NZ Chardonnays we've tasted.

Smells

At nine years of age this wine shows complex aromas of white stone fruit, alpine flowers and toasty oak.

Tastes

Intricate, nutty and toasty barrel fermentation complexities meld with stone fruit and lithe acidity, leading to a seamless, long and very searching finish. It is an incredible Chardonnay, great drinking now, but being in magnum will continue to reward those who are wanting to hold on for another 5–10 years.
