Estate Vineyards Chardonnay has ripe stone fruit and citrus characters, subtly enhanced by fermentation in seasoned oak barrels, lee's contact and a creamy malolactic influence, to create a rich and elegant wine.
This wine is a wonderful example of Hawke’s Bay’s remarkable 2013 growing season, already described by the UK’s Decanter magazine as “the stuff of legends”.

Winery Tasting Notes
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’13 has a bright green colour with gold highlights.
It is fresh and expressive with white meadow flowers, hazelnut, white peach, green melon and, oat butter biscuit characters.
The palate quickly builds in intensity with the rich citrus and ripe stonefruit flavours that are classically Hawke’s Bay in a great year, leading through to a long, fine, finish.
Estate Vineyards Chardonnay ’13 is delicious own its own, or a wonderful partner for both simply prepared and fuller flavoured seafood, and white meat dishes.
