2019 Pirinoa Road Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

93 Points Richard Caro
In stock
A really elegant Chardonnay for a really sharp price. The Pirinoa Road is a boutique offering that is aimed at sophisticated style without the big-label costs. Oak influence is only partial, while a minimal malolactic (buttery) fermentation was allowed using indigenous yeasts. The result is a classy spin on the classic style, in which white stonefruits and nougat notes are balanced with a harmonious citric and mineral freshness. Delicious value!

Its Origins

What The Critics Say

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2018 vintage)

"Wonderfully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows golden peach, rockmelon, baked fig, vanilla and cedar characters. It is equally impressive on the palate with excellent weight and persistency. The wine offers fabulous complexity backed by creamy mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing long and delicious.$27.00. Nov 2019." Drink 2019 - 2022

92/100 Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)

"Ripe, textural chardonnay with peach, toffee, hazelnut and spicy oak flavours. A seamless wine in a soft, rich and moderately weighty style. Accessible now but should develop well in bottle. 05 NOV 2018." Drink 2018 - 2022
