    Villa Maria Reserve Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay is undoubtedly up there with Aotearoa’s finest Chardonnay producers, if not the best. If you disagree their trophy cabinet (being NZ’s most awarded winery it must be more like a large shed by now) has a thing or two to say about that.

    Their Reserve label range simply doesn’t go a vintage without collecting a Gold or three along the way – you’d put your house on it. And hey presto – three Gold medals in the bag for this exciting 2017 release!

    A full bodied, powerful style Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay that oozes class and style. Nick Pecone, chief wine dude at Villa Maria, calls this one “the jewel in the crown for our Chardonnays“. No ifs, buts or maybes – this is all class and the Chardonnay you need to be busting out at your next dinner party!

    Make sure you try it now and cellar the rest over the next 6-8 years.
