With a seamless palate of peachy butter and toast, this Chardonnay-lover's dream is also a beautiful white wine in general thanks to perfect balance and elegance. For the same reason it is an ideal food Chardonnay, superb with roasted white meat. An in-house favourite, this must be the most sophisticated $20 Chard out of Hawkes Bay.

Overview

Grape

Chardonnay

Its Origins

From the renowned region of Te awanga in the Hawkes Bay. This area always delivers full flavoured chardonnays- ( think Clearview ). Chris Harrison is a small passionate producer of very well priced wines. We wish more New Zealand wineries followed his philosophy of over delivering on the quality/price front. "Fleshy with well rounded ripe stonefruit flavours. Toasty and creamy notes adding complexity and good richness and harmony," A steal

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current 2016 vintage

"Nectarine, apricot and brioche aromas are apparent on the nose while the palate is awash with fresh, juicy pineapple and citrus notes. This wine is underpinned by a fine textured minerality and rounded out by a touch of butterscotch coming from the malo-lactic fermentation. Thoughtful use of fine French oak binds these flavours together creating complexity and harmony in this fine example of Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay."

93/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2015 vintage)

"Richly fruited and generously expressed, the powerful bouquet shows yellow stone fruit, mango, cedar and butterscotch aromas, leading to a sumptuous palate that is filled with delectable fruit and vanillin oak flavours. A gorgeous opulent style. At its best: now to 2018. $25.00. www.beachhouse.co.nz. Oct 2016."
