Villa Maria Cellar Selection Chardonnay 2023 750ml


Villa Maria Cellar Selection Chardonnay 750ml


Fruit from several prestigious Chardonnay vineyards throughout Hawkes Bay feature in this wine. Once harvested and pressed the resulting juice was fermented in a mixture of oak barriques (14% new) with a combination of inoculated and wild yeast. Partial malolactic fermentation has added weight to the mid palate. Nine months maturation on full yeast lees with regular stirring followed in barrel prior to the wine being blended and bottled.

Tasting Note

Classically Hawkes Bay in style this Chardonnay reveals a fragrant nose of grilled peach and nectarine stone fruit, with complexing cashew characters from subtle French oak. A silken textured mouthfeel unfolds with layers of fruit, delicate oak spice and subtle mealy flavours topped with wonderful acidity.

Alc: 14%
