    Winemaker's Notes:

    An intriguing, refined and complex Chardonnay displaying stylish finesse. It is elegant, with aromas of subtle citrus, predominantly lemon, and complex smoky notes intermingling on the nose. The palate displays layers of citrus and subtle integrated oak enhancing the tight structural finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This Villa Maria Chardonnay starts off with toasted custardy richness on the nose, hints of vanilla and relatively restrained fruit, then reveals its intensity on the palate, where flavors of vanilla, pineapple, citrus and smoke swirl together. Despite the richness, it’s tightly structured, with a long, textured yet bright finish. Drink now–2018.

    Balancing lusty richness with firm acidity, this shows a lot of oak influence in flavors of caramel and butterscotch. It’s bold and smoky, a white for seared scallops in cream.
