Buy Villa Maria Chardonnay Taylors Pass Vineyard
Vinous 88 points - Pale yellow. Inviting aromas of nectarine and spicy oak. Supple and silky but also nicely delineated, offering good intensity to its nectarine and spice flavors. A bit oaky on the back end. Doesn’t have quite the thrust or lift for a higher score.  (Sep 2013)

Wine maker notes
Taylors Pass Vineyard is located on a warm, stony terrace on the northern side of the Awatere River in Marlborough. This naturally devigouring site aids in a ‘tempering’ of yield. This coupled with extensive canopy manipulation and the clone, CL 95, provides fruit with excellent primary expression.

From a one-man band to a global brand in just 50 years In 1961, at just 21 years of age, George leased five acres of land from his father in Mangere, Auckland and started off with just an acre of vines. He harvested his first grapes in 1962 and made his first wine under the name Villa Maria. Throughout the 1960s Villa Maria was a one-man band, with George’s wife, Gail, supporting him in his venture. He made dry red and white wines, sourcing grapes from the greater Auckland regions. In the early 1970s he started to employ staff and the company began to expand rapidly. Today, Villa Maria employs more than 250 permanent staff and exports wine to over 50 countries worldwide.
