Villa Maria Single Vineyard Fletcher Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Grown and hand-picked in the Rocenvin vineyard in Old Renwick Road, Marlborough, and given 'the works' in the winery, the 2000 vintage is a sturdy (14.5 per cent alcohol) wine with highly concentrated, citrusy, peachy, mealy, toasty flavours, beautifully fragrant and rich. The 2002 fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (80 per cent new), is ripe and smooth, with grapefruit and pear flavours, good fruit/oak balance and mealy, biscuity complexities. In its youth, it's a more elegant but slightly less intense wine than the 2000.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Grown and hand-picked in the Rocenvin vineyard in Old Renwick Road, Marlborough, and given 'the works' in the winery, the 2000 vintage is a big, toasty, strongly wooded style with concentrated, citrusy, peachy, mealy flavours. A powerful wine, it has a slightly hot finish from its soaring alcohol level (14.5 per cent), but is beautifully fragrant and rich.
