Winemaker Ant Mackenzie sits at the top table of Hawke's Bay winemakers and his partnership with well-known distributor Jeannine McCallum has seen the birth of the exciting Cognoscente range. We love everything about these wines. We love the super cool retro labels. We love the signature Ant Mackenzie generous winemaking. And we love the obvious value for money that this new range offers discerning wine buyers.
This chardonnay is mouthfilling and rich with soft, creamy caramel flavours flooding the palate. An excellent representation of Hawke's Bay Chardonnay that makes for a superb one-size-fits-all option.
Pale yellow with flecks of green / gold. Aromas of peach and nectarine with spicy oak and Anzac biscuit complexity. Soft acidity with finely structured fruit and oak tannins. Full bodied with a long, lingering finish.
