CHAMPION WINE OF SHOW | NZIWS
CHAMPION CHARDONNAY | NZIWS
18.5/20 | Joelle Thomson
Clearview Reserve consistently makes a powerful statement in this category and the 2020 vintage has just taken out 2 Trophies at New Zealand's largest wine awards- including the coveted CHAMPION WINE OF SHOW trophy.
This is always one of New Zealand's most impressive white wines. Given the utmost care and attention, this famous wine is tour de force Chardonnay in every sense and this latest release is stunning in every regard. Big. Balanced. Bold. Beautiful.
The winery writes "A classic Clearview Estate Reserve Chardonnay of power & sophistication. Stylish with power & complexity, mealy with stonefruit, ripe tropical flavours & substantial body. Drink now for a fruit driven style or cellar until 2026"
Joelle Thomson writes "This reserve Chardonnay is a rich, full-flavoured style with creamy, butterynotes to the fore and a full body adding to its crowd-pleasing appeal. If you love big buttery styles of Chardonnay, look no further than this tasty drop from the long established Clearview on the coast at Te Awanga. It was named Champion Wine of Show at the NZ International Wine Show."
