Villa Maria Reserve Marlborough Chardonnay (2019)

This very elegant wine is hand-harvested at warm sites in the Awatere and Wairau valleys, and fermented and matured in French oak barrels . Bright, light lemon/green, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) is fresh, youthful and finely structured, with strong, vibrant, peachy, citrusy flavours, gently seasoned with toasty oak, lively acidity, and excellent delicacy, poise and length. Best drinking 2023+.
