WINERY INFORMATION

Villa Maria is a reputed wine company of New Zealand founded by Sir George Fistonich in the year 1961. At the tender age of 21, George leased a 5-acre piece of land in Mangere, Auckland from his father to plant his own grapevines. A year later, he harvested his first grapes and released his first wine under the name Villa Maria.

TASTING NOTES

Showcasing a pale yellow colour with deep green tinges throughout, this delightful Barrique Fermented Reserve Chardonnay exudes fresh aromas of stone fruits, tropical fruits and smoky grilled nuts from its attractive bouquet. These fragrances effortlessly shift to a creamy and textured palate filled with flavours of ripe melons and stone fruits combined with subtle biscuity oak and mealy undertones. Supported by a good acid balance, the full bodied palate culminates in a delicate and refreshing finale. Although made for consumption upon release, this elegant white wine can also be cellared for a period of 5 to 7 years from vintage. Pair it with food items such as bay scallop pan roast, lobster Pappardelle with Chive butter, or wine-baked chicken legs with Marjoram to fully appreciate its grand flavours.
