Villa Maria 2005 Waikahu Vineyard Chardonnay (Hawke's Bay)

Villa Maria's single-vineyard wines are usuallly incredibly expressive, and this flashy Chardonnay from Hawke's Bay is no exception. Bold nectarine and citrus notes are skillfully framed by toasty oak. There's a woody wallop here, but also plenty of fruit, and rather than being heavy, it finishes long and fresh. Delicious now, so there's no need to defer gratification. Joe Czerwinski
