FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "...offering fabulous drinking"
THE BEST VALUE 100% BARREL FERMENTED CHARDONNAY IN THE NEW ZEALAND MARKET. 40% NEW OAK!
This wonderful Hawkes Bay Chardonnay was vinted specifically for Advintage by celebrated winemaker Ant Mackenzie. With leading roles at Villa Maria, Dry River, Te Awa and Spy Valley (before embarking on his solo career) we knew Ant was the right man for the job and for the second year in a row we set him the challenge of making us the best possible Hawkes Bay Chardonnay that we could sell in the key $15 bracket. We are pleased to report that, for the second year in a row, he has smacked that challenge out of the park.
This is generously framed, 100% barrel fermented Chardonnay that explodes on the palate with layers of rich baked stonefruits, nutty caramel and creamy lemon-butter. Complete with a FIVE STAR review, this exciting release is clearly excellent value and anyone who likes barrel fermented Chardonnay will be nodding their head in agreement as soon as they have tasted it. Climb in.
Big Villa is an Advintage brand with a huge following and a proven reputation for excellence. We only release wines under the Big Villa label if they offer our clients significantly better value than we can source through traditional winery / distribution channels. Buy with complete confidence.
Delicious Chardonnay for any season
Great to see this delicious Chardonnay back ... a genuine bargain at this price.
So glad you've brought this back again this year. This is just as yummy as the previous vintage.
