Villa Maria Private Bin Chardonnay Viognier Gisborne East Coast New Zealand Chardonnay White 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Since George Fistonich founded Villa Maria in 1961, it has grown in reputation to become New Zealand's most successful privately owned winery and maker of New Zealand's most awarded wines. Many respected wine writers and critics support this statement; The new Sotheby's Wine Encylopedia stated of Villa Maria "Probably the best all round producer in New Zealand. Villa Maria has a vast array of wines, yet they are all beautifully crafted to enhance fruit and finesse.... if the quality is super, the consistency is supernatural". This success has been achieved through the Villa Maria team's total commitment to the quality of its varietal wines which is continuously rewarded in national and international wine competitions. The Villa Maria Private Bin East Coast blend consists of parcels grown in Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and a small portion from the Marlborough region. This inter-regional blend produces a complete wine displaying the full spectrum of Chardonnay flavours. This East Coast Chardonnay is Fruit-driven in style, exhibiting ripe peach and pear with underlying hints of citrus blossom. On the palate the upfront fruit flavours are followed by a creamy and nutty texture with integrated oak characters. This Chardonnay is beautifully matched with light dishes so try with an antipasto platter, chicken Caesar salad or seafood dish.
