A Trophy winning Chardonnay and incredibly delicious for this price! This won Chardonnay Trophy at the NZ International Wine Show and got 5 Stars from Cuisine. Superb fruit was whole bunch pressed to oak and left to ferment natural-style in vineyard yeasts. The result is a harmonious but ripe and creamy wine with luscious Chardonnay flavours. Offering exceptional satisfaction and class, at under $20 this is crazy value. Stocks are limited!

Its Origins

"It has been a waiting game to see how Te Awa would emerge from the Villa Maria Estates chrysalis since it was purchased late in 2012. I’ve made discreet enquiries with the Villa Maria folk and Ant Mackenzie about the progress and re-emergence of this fine Hawke’s Bay brand, and the feelings have been positive all round. No doubt there has been considerable soul-searching to ensure that the individuality of ‘Te Awa’ and its associated brands of ‘Left Field’ and ‘Kidnapper Cliffs’ would be maintained, especially in the light of the Villa Maria Estates group already having Hawke’s Bay presences in the form of Vidal Estate, Esk Valley and wines under Thornbury and Villa Maria itself." Raymond Chan

What The Critics Say

Trophy for Champion Chardonnay, NZ International Wine Awards 2018

"A delectable bouquet of stonefruit and vanilla and a vibrant, lively taste with focussed savoury nutty oak lifted by citrus and stonefruit that’s so seductively smooth and expressive as the soft creamy taste lingers."

5 Stars Cuisine Magazine

"A familiar style from this label with the expected weight and richness supported by roasted stone fruits and rich baking spices. The fruit and the oak slot neatly into place, giving the wine a defined structure and polish. The wine will benefit from further ageing to develop more complexity and its full potential."
