THE NEW 2016 VINTAGE

The 2015 sold out in a flash but now you can get your hands on the 2016.

THE CHARDONNAY DEAL TO END ALL CHARDONNAY DEALS  |  A COMPELLING OPPORTUNITY THAT SITS AT THE VERY HIGHEST STANDARDS OF NEW ZEALAND WINEMAKING |  SAVE $372 on CASE BUYS! 

We picked up this elite parcel from the same producer that provided us with the wines for our recent Big Villa Reserve deals but this small parcel of wine was destined to be released under the winery's revered top label before the winery was sold in 2017. Only 16 barrels made it through the selection process. 

This wine is a powerful statement that has received every possible attention in the vineyard and winery. Produced from stringently assessed, handpicked fruit it has been 100% barrel fermented with approx. 30% new French oak. It is a richly weighted, full bodied Chardonnay with refined creamy citrus flavours and lots toasty oak in support. This handcrafted Chardonnay was built to go the distance and has not been put through MLF to maintain it's pristine fruit characters. It has just been bottled and will develop beautifully over time. It has a substantial cellar life ahead of it should you chose to lay some down. 


Big Villa Reserve is an Advintage brand. To protect their brand integrity, we are unable to divulge the identity of the winery who originally produced this wine. We can say that the producer is an iconic Hawkes Bay winery with a decades old reputation for crafting Reserve Hawkes Bay wines of the very highest calibre. This wine is in perfect condition. Buy with complete confidence.

Description
Produced from the top16 barrels of the year, this elite wine represents the very best Chardonnay that a crack winemaking team could produce from the excellent 2016 vintage. 100% barrel fermented (with the remainder of the oak treatment from 1-2 year old barriques) this bespoke wine enjoyed extended ageing on its lees. It's a powerful style with classic regional citrus and stonefruit flavours supported by lightly spicy, toasty oak. This wine has been vinted to mature gracefully over time and will flourish over the coming decade if cellared well.
