Overview

“First made in 1990, Church Road Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay remains our most popular wine. Predominantly grown in cooler appellations around Hawke’s Bay, Chardonnay in these vineyards retains vibrant fruit flavours and gentle, balanced acidity. Barrel fermentation and aging on yeast lees overlays toasty brioche, roasted hazelnut notes and hints of smoke while also filling out the palate and bringing an element of creaminess. The result is a flavoursome, complex Chardonnay that is unashamedly just a little bit old school.”

Winery Tasting Notes

A flavourful, multidimensional Chardonnay with a core of ripe stonefruit and fragrant citrus, overlaid with aromas of roasted nuts, toasted brioche, subtle creaminess and a hint of smoke. The palate is supple and soft, with gentle acidity providing freshness and balance.

CELLARING AND FOOD MATCHING

A versatile and food friendly wine ideally suited to traditional Chardonnay matches including seafood and poultry and light game dishes particularly where an element of creaminess, such as beurre blanc sauce is included in the dish. However the wine is also elegant enough to be appreciated as an aperitif or to match with lighter, fresher flavoured seafood dishes. A great Chardonnay for the warmer summer months.
