Villa Maria Earth Garden Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2021)

Certified organic, the 2021 vintage (4*) is already enjoyable, but likely to be at its best mid-2023+. Made in a fruit-driven style, it is mouthfilling, with fresh, generous peach and grapefruit flavours, showing considerable complexity, balanced acidity and a slightly creamy texture.
