Villa Maria Cellar Selection HB Chardonnay 2020

$15.99

This has value and Villa Maria stamped all over it.

"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.

The 2019 Hawkes Bay vintage was exceptionally warm, dry and settled, allowing the vast majority of fruit to be harvested across the region with ripe flavours and in pristine condition.

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 (10% new) prior to 11 months maturation on full yeast lees." Winery
