${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

The Villa Maria story began in 1961, at just 21 years of age, Sir George Fistonich leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. The first wine under the name Villa Maria in 1962 was made with grapes harvested from this block. Years later the Keltern Vineyard was established in HawkeÕs Bay and with an incredible track record of awards and accolades, the Keltern Vineyard is truly one of New ZealandÕs premier sites for Chardonnay. Displaying a brilliant straw and lime-tinted hue in the glass, the nose offers a fragrant and complex medley of ripe melon, citrus blossom and nougat, complemented by underlying notes of grilled nuts. The palate is generous and mouthfilling initially then the long line of concentration and natural acidity leads to a sustained and powerful finish. This wine will develop further complexity, mineral and toast like characters with careful cellaring.
