The unstoppable Villa Maria team are knocking it out of the park again with this stunning Ihumatao release. A crowd pleaser for sure.
Cameron Douglas writes "Pure, soft, ripe, fruit-laden bouquet with aromas of fresh white peach and red apple flesh, vanilla cream and apricot, clay earthy suggestions and fine toasty wood layers. Delicious on the palate with a vibrant texture emphasising flavours of grapefruit and gun-flint, lees and barrel spices, stone fruits and mild toasted wood complexities. Delicious, fresh, youthful and textured. Fine wood tannins and medium+ acid line accentuating the a long finish."
Sam Kim writes "Combining power and grace, this stunning chardonnay shows white flesh nectarine, vanilla, spicy oak and golden pastry notes with a hint of lemon zest. The concentrated palate delivers outstanding depth and multi-layered mouthfeel together with creamy texture and juicy acidity, making it hugely appealing."
Bob Campbell MW writes "Lush, soft and silken chardonnay with bright grapefruit, citrus, peach, nectarine, root ginger, hazelnut and spicy oak flavours. A concentrated wine, with a backbone of fruity acidity helping to drive a lengthy finish."
