    Winemaker's Notes:

    The proportion of new oak (15%) is carefully controlled to preserve the classic Hawkes Bay stonefruit and melon character. The result is a full-bodied yet elegant Chardonnay with hints of butter and oak and an underpinning of grapefruit-like acidity which gives it freshness and length. This is a food-friendly wine that is rich and complex with a long, satisfying finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a lush, creamy-textured wine, redolent of roasted cashews and grilled pineapple. It's toward the full-bodied side of the spectrum for New Zealand Chardonnay, but retains ample complexity in its interplay of nuts and citrus, with a hint of peach on the long finish. Editors' Choice.
