    ull on Gizzy Chardonnay from NZ’s number one Chardonnay producer. Villa Maria’s Reserve Barrique Fermented Chardy is big, bold, buttery heaven in a glass!

    If you like this style chances are you’ve probably come across this label before but rest assured nothing other than the very best makes it into the famous black label of Villa Maria’s Reserve labels.

    Awarded Five Stars and ranked in the Top Ten NZ Chardonnays in Cuisine magazine’s 2017 Chardonnay tasting back that up. They love a good food and wine match at Cuisine and they reckon you ought to be busting this one out with a dish of seared tuna. Yum!

    The guys at Villa reckon this is good to cellar for 5-7 years from vintage, so up to around 2023. Get your hands on some while you can, you won’t be disappointed.
