Produced by New Zealand's Champion producer of Chardonnays. This recently released 2017 vintage is an excellent follow up to the award winning previous vintages. It offers incredible amounts of Chardonnay satisfaction for very few dollars. Every year the Villa Maria Cellar Selection Hawkes Bay Chardonnay comes through with the goodies.


Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2017 Vintage)
"Glossy lemon gold with an attractive toast and grilled peach scent. Quite savoury at first then juicy tropical fruit and stonefruit flavours burst through and the soft oak finish lingers with a spicy zing. Not too heavy, terrific socialising wine and top value for the money."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"A top buy. Already drinking well, the 2017 vintage is a mouthfilling wine, fully barrel-fermented (mostly French, 17 per cent new). Light lemon/green, it is sweet-fruited, with generous, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing good complexity. Best drinking mid-2019+."


4 Stars & 17.5/20 Raymond Chan, July 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright yellow colour with pale golden hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly proportioned with fresh aromas of white and yellow stonefruits and some citrus fruit elements, very finely entwined with subtle creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes and a suggestion of lemon-curd MLF. This is harmonious and integrated. Medium-full bodied, the palate has good depth and intensity of stonefruits and citrus fruits melded with creamy and nutty oak hints and a delicate amalgam of minerals and lemon-curd MLF. This has a good core with some roundness and a smooth flow, enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine carries to a light, but lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Chardonnay with good depth of stonefruit flavours harmoniously integrated with subtle oak on a fresh, smooth palate. Serve with seafood and most white meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. Clones 95, 15, 548 and Mendoza from the ‘Keltern’, ‘Lyons’ and ‘Waikahu’ vineyards, 10% of the fruit hand-picked, the wine fully barrel-fermented, 10% by indigenous yeasts, to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in approx. 17% new French oak with 20% MLF."
