Where in the World is the Best Chardonnay? Right Here

Grown in the Ihumātao Vineyard in front of its Auckland winery, Villa Maria’s Single Vineyard Ihumātao Auckland Chardonnay 2019 was named best Chardonnay by wine critic Bob Campbell MW from The Real Review in a blind tasting of the world’s finest.

“A concentrated chardonnay with grapefruit, tree fruits and oyster-shell characters. Very pure and defined. A seductive wine that has the X-factor. Wonderfully textural,” noted Campbell.

A proud moment flying the flag for New Zealand Chardonnay against some of the finest examples in the world.
