Private Bin | East Coast
Vintage 2022 
Villa Maria Private Bin Chardonnay is medium bodied with a refreshing acidity. Crack open the screwcap and revel in its flavours of ripe peach, fig and zingy citrus with a touch of buttery oak.
The 2022 season was warm across our key wine growing regions with frequent summer rain keeping the vines growing healthily. Ripe fruit was harvested throughout the Gisborne and Hawkes Bay regions where the maritime climate is perfect for slowly ripening Chardonnay, promoting flavour intensity and freshness.
