Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Chardonnay (2019)

Grown in the company's Taylors Pass Vineyard in Marlborough's Awatere Valley, this wine is hand-harvested and fermented and matured in French oak barriques (partly new.) The 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a bright, light yellow/green, mouthfilling wine, with very good intensity of fresh, vibrant, citrusy, slightly peachy flavours, integrated toasty oak, and lively acidity. It needs time; best drinking 2023+.
