Villa Maria Cellar Selection Chardonnay 2012 – $$
I feel the blogging year doesn’t get into the swing of it until I have written about a Villa Maria wine. I just love what these guys do.
No exception here. Bright yellow. 13.5%. Gorgeous nose of ripe peaches and tropical mangoes. It is buttery and mealy and toasty-pinenutty to taste. Well balanced with an delicious citrus edge. It disappears in the glass in an instant…
A full-flavoured Chardy at a compelling price, esp. when on special. 4+
