About This Wine

Shows immediate notes of lemon oil, white peach and concentrated ripe nectarine. The aromas of citrus blossom and clover honey sparkle over a luxurious palate of grapefruit, toast and lemon nougat.

Fine, gorgeous and intense. Chardonnay royalty with focus, energy and oodles of its signature, moreish character.

The Elston will continue to evolve in bottle for five years from harvest.

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.
