Villa Maria 'Taylor's Pass' Chardonnay 2015

Tasting Notes

Jan 2019 - The 2015 Taylors Pass Chardonnay came from a vintage that was exceptional with a dry summer and moderate crop levels. The nose has a captivating aromatic profile with suggestions of light oatmeal, toasted oak, almond to the citrus and peach notes. Elegantly structured this has a lightly creamy textural mouth feel on its medium to medium fuller bodied frame, with a nice enlivening undercurrent of acidity that gives drive and vibrancy. Flavors of lemon citrus have a touch of almond and brioche which comes through on the long, mineral etched finish. This is just now starting to show well and should drink gorgeously over the next 3-4 years.

Winemaker Notes

This wine has been gently crafted using a natural approach to winemaking. The result is an intriguing, delicate and complex Chardonnay displaying stylish finesse. It is elegant with aromas of subtle citrus, predominantly lemon. Mineral and complex smoky notes also intermingle on the nose. The palate has complex layers of citrus and minerals, finishing with a long tight structure.
