Wine tasting notes

This wine is fruit-driven in style, exhibiting ripe peach with underlying citrus and fig characters. On the palate, these flavours are enhanced by a creamy texture and a delicate suggestion of oak. A medium-bodied Chardonnay that is styled for enjoyment upon release with or without food.

Winery information

Villa Maria

It is not easy to tell your Dad that you are quitting a career in carpentry to try your hand at making wine. But in 1961, at the age of 21, that's exactly what Sir George Fistonich did. He leased five acres of land from his father, planted one acre with grapes and started making wine under the name 'Villa Maria' which he chose because his friends thought it sounded European. Since those first cuttings took hold in the soil out in Mangere, near Auckland, Sir George has been determined to be at the cutting edge of quality winegrowing.

Vinification notes

Crushed, gently pressed and settled to leave light solids for fermentation in contact with premium French oak. Some parcels were encouraged to ferment with indigenous yeast to provide complexity to the blend. Juice was fermented at 18° in stainless steel tanks. Partial malolactic and maturation with regular yeast stirring followed.
