We're big fans of the Thornbury range by Villa Maria. They're constantly producing rock-solid wines that claim their fair share of gongs and provide out the gate value for money and this Gisborne Chardy is no different. It's creamy and textural with delicious ripe tropical fruit flavours and a subtle hint of oak. A well-priced stunner. Get into it.
The winery writes "This Chardonnay displays characteristics of melon, peach and tropical fruit notes. A fruit-driven style wine, uniquely derived from the growing conditions of the Gisborne wine region. A creamy and textural wine, it shows both harmony and concentration. It will reward further cellaring over the next five years."
