Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

This wine is Fruit-driven in style, exhibiting ripe peach and pear aromas with underlying hints of citrus blossom.

Palate

On the palate the upfront fruit flavours are followed by a creamy texture with integrated oak characters. A richly structured wine that is soft and styled for enjoyment now.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy upon release and over the next one to two years.

Food Matching

Enjoy with an antipasto platter, chicken Caesar salad or seafood dishes.

Vineyard

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. The vineyards in the three regions are managed differently to ensure that their individual microclimate produces the optimal fruit.

Winemaking Notes

Cool fermentation techniques in stainless steel tanks and barrel were employed to produce a soft and balanced wine. Upon completion of fermentation, parcels of the wine were inoculated for malolactic fermentation, while others were left on yeast lees with regular stirring. This provides further texture and weight to the palate.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Founded in 1961 by current owner and Managing Director, George Fistonich, Villa Maria is a privately owned winery.

Villa Maria produces New Zealand's most awarded wines and has achieved acclaim, both nationally and internationally since the early 1980's.  This outstanding achievement is due to an uncompromising commitment and dedication to quality at all stages of the grape growing and winemaking processes.

Villa Maria sources grapes from each of New Zealand's premium grape growing regions: Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and produces wines in two state of the art wineries situated in Marlborough and Auckland. Villa Maria was the first major wine company in New Zealand to seal their wines with screwcaps, ensuring their wine reaches the consumer just as the winemaker intended.
