Villa Maria Single Vineyard Ihumatao Auckland Chardonnay 2012
The only Auckland wine among our top place-getters was grown in a vineyard with a medal-winning pedigree. Flinty, oyster-shell aromatics set the scene for a classy, vital, compact mouthful. Candied lime and cinnamon notes flow to a lengthy finish. Try it with a rabbit and pork terrine.
