About This Wine
A modern, new world expression of pure Chardonnay. The cool yet sunny environment of the Te Awanga Vineyard near Cape Kidnappers allows the development of intense Chardonnay flavours in the grapes, captured using traditional winemaking techniques seen in the Chablis region of France. The palate is taut and textural with a phenolic backbone providing length to the sweet citrus and melon fruits.
"Smoky, almost gravelly, reductive elements add both complexity and tautness to this strictly controlled chardonnay. Steely stone fruit flavours run through the palate with just the slightest hints of both sage and buttered toast." Campbell Mattinson
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.
Hawkes bay is split into a few subregions, the most notable of these are Gimblett Gravels, Bridge Pa Triangle and Te Mata Special Character Zone. 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.
