Food Pairing

A classic match with most white meats, rich seafood dishes, cheese and salads. Also highly enjoyable on its own.

Vineyards and Winemaking

The 2017 Hawkes Bay vintage was a season of two halves with very warm dry conditions prevailing for the majority of summer, including the driest January in over 50+ years of records. Harvest commenced in early March but would come under intense weather pressure from there on in. The conditions experienced in the mid-late Summer were the catalyst for ensuring flavour ripeness was achieved in time for harvest. Clones 95, cl15, cl548 and Mendoza feature from several prestigious Chardonnay vineyards.
