Gold Medal - Drinks Business Spring Tasting

93 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 
"It's elegantly fruited and delightfully expressed on the nose showing white flesh stone fruit, lemon peel, nougat and roasted cashew aromas, followed by a soothing palate that's ripe and fleshy. Beautifully harmonious and lingering with appealing complexity. At its best: now to 2026."

93 Points - Cameron Douglas MS World of Wine
"Aromas of fresh peach and raw cashew nut, baked apple and vanilla spice, there’s a moment of fresh yoghurt suggestng some softening of acidity that works nicely alongside the barrel spice and toasty qualities. Plenty of weight and satin texture on the palate, dry with flavours of tree and orchard fruits, citrus and baking spice. The nutty cashew nut quality also returns. Youthful, refresging and dry. A lovely wine with best drinking from late 2022 through 2028+."

A rich and full flavoured Hawkes Bay Chardonnay. Its flavour profile is a mix of peach, grilled nuts, butter, grapefruit with a subtle oak spice. It is both complex and delicious and a classic expression of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay.

A blend of two contrasting vineyard sites. Old clone 95 vines in Bay View growing in ex marine soils provide the finished wine with richness and a white peach fruit expression while a block of clone 15 vines planted inland on a cooler river terrace at Maraekakaho provides acidity and a flinty grapefruit note.
