Villa Maria Single Vineyard Taylors Pass Chardonnay Marlborough 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The picturesque Taylors Pass Vineyard is located on the meandering Awatere River in Marlborough. This elegant single vineyard Chardonnay from the Taylors Pass displays flavour profiles of citrus, white peach and almond with subtle integrated toasty oak enhancing the finish. In this mineral driven wine, hints of gun smoke complexity are blended with flavours of fresh lemon rind and brioche. The restrained yet present acid backbone defines this as a Marlborough cool climate Chardonnay.
