James Suckling – This has such a floral, fragrant and perfumed nose with sliced-pear and melon aromas, as well as very fresh, fleshy flavors on the palate. This has such a pure, gently honeyed, pear and melon-flavored palate. Refined and refreshing. Drink now.
About This Wine
Pale lime to pale straw. Subtle, yes definitive aromas of lime zest and grapefruit pulp with hints of brioche and fresh cashews. The palate has saline acidity that carries the citrus notes from nose to mouth. The savory complexity provides the perfect counter-point for a Chardonnay that truly reflects its maritime origins.
Pair this wine alongside comté cheese, truffle pasta, or smashed pea-pesto on freshly toasted sourdough.
Wines of Hawke's Bay
The oldest wine producing region in New Zealand, Hawkes bay is located on the east coast of the North Island.

These subregions are known for producing some of the best reds in the country, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The top blends from these regions are on par with top level Bordeaux blends from around the world.
White wine is also produced in Hawke’s Bay, with Chardonnay in the lead in terms of volume with Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Viogner following behind.
