VillaMaria SingleVineyard Auckland Ihumatao Chardonnay 2016

Single Vineyard

Ihumatao Chardonnay

The Ihumatao Vineyard is located in a wind protected volcanic basin on the edge of the Manukau harbour. Free draining soils and a unique soil profile lead to the production of a very distinctive Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

This wine displays bright lemon and straw hues in the glass. The nose offers a complex array of aromas including white peach, fresh grapefruit zest and roasted cashews. A textured, layered palate unfolds revealing further complexity, mealy notes and lovely linear acidity with a long elegant finish.

Vineyards and Winemaking

Vertical Shoot Position (VSP) trellising with 2 cane pruning was employed which resulted in low yielding vines. Free draining soils and a unique soil profile lead to the production of a distinctive Chardonnay. 2017 provided optimum conditions for ripening fruit with delicious flavour and balanced acidity.
