Villa Maria Reserve Chardonnay Barrique Fermented 2013

Gisborne - Poverty Bay, North Island, New ZealandHigh sunshine hours and a warm climate rights Gisborne as New Zealand's fruit basket region, and that generosity of fruit is felt in this ripe, rich, buttery chardonnay. Heady orchard fruit, crème caramel, lemon curd, hazelnuts, toasted wood and smoke throughout, with a fine line of lemon acidity that streams down the middle. Finishing dry(ish) a slight cushion of sugar (4.4 g/l), this full white will pair with your richer seafood dishes.Tasted: 08 June 2016Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: Villa Maria Estate Ltd.Distributors: Dandurand
