The Loom is a local surfer term for the best wave of the day and this is celebrated winemaker Rod McDonald's flagship chardonnay from his Te Awanga vineyards. It is a typically coastal style with citrus and stone-fruit aromas combined with lovely brioche and spice complexity and a touch of minerality on the palate.
This small batch, limited release is quite the powerhouse from the 2020 vintage and is sure to impress anyone who enjoys premium Hawke's Bay Chardonnay. Bottle-age has broadened the palate, adding weight and softer creme brulee characters, and this exceptional release is only now entering its perfect drinking window. It comes with our highest recommendation.
The winery writes "A typical coastal Chardonnay with citrus and stone-fruit aromas combined with a lovely biscotti and spice complexity. On the palate, it’s fleshy and textural with a little minerality and tightness which promises a long life and gathering complexity."
