FOUR STARS 17.5/20 | Raymond Chan.
ALWAYS A SELL OUT.
Formerly known as Clearview Te Awanga Chardonnay, this is vibrant Hawkes Bay wine where the focus is on juicy fruit weight. Creamy oak is clearly visible but while it enters the discussion, it doesn't dominate proceedings. Always popular.
The winery writes "Our fruity chardonnay, balanced with a touch of oak is hugely popular and an ideal anytime wine. Partial barrel fermentation offers complexity, delivering a characteristic purity underpinned by natural acidity. Oyster shell aromatics give way to a white peach and pear flavour profile. “Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses lively and vibrant. "
