Beach House (Hawkes Bay) Selection 2020 Chardonnay

Always a fave with Chardonnay fans and a bargain compared to others!

Winery notes
"Our 2020 Selection Chardonnay is absolutely superb. 100% handpicked. 100% whole bunch pressed and fermented in our finest French oak barrels including 21% new oak. 2020 was an exceptional vintage, with a long hot dry summer. The grapes were immaculately clean. The wine spent 10 months in barrel and was stirred regularly softening the wine and giving it lots of lovely leesy complexity.

The nose is filled with brioche, peach, melon and grapefruit pith with hints of toasted nuts and spice. On the palate the wine is seamless with many different flavours flowing nicely together. All the hallmarks of an ultra-premium Chardonnay are present – the fruit, oak and MLF flavours coalesce together nicely. "

Clearview (Hawkes Bay) 2020 Coastal Chardonnay

92 Points, Top Rank, Top Value and Buy of the Week - The Real Review Bob Cambell MW

Clearview knows a thing or two about this variety, so rest assured you’ll not be disappointed with the words "Clearview & Chardonnay" together on a label.

A fruity chardonnay, balanced with a touch of oak is hugely popular and an ideal anytime wine. Partial barrel fermentation offers complexity, delivering a characteristic purity underpinned by natural acidity. Oyster shell aromatics give way to a white peach and pear flavour profile.

Esk valley (Hawkes Bay) 2020 Artisanal Chardonnay

93 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 
4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper, Michael Cooper’s Buyer's Guide
95 Points - Cameron Douglas MS World of Wine

"A bouquet with complexity and intrigue, depth and curiosity. Tense and youthful with flavours of white and yellow tree fruits, a touch of grapefruit, lees, mineral and spice.
Excellent texture with a core of fruit surrounded by oak, fine wood tannins and contrasting acidity. Well made, but does need some time to develop more harmonious transitions.
Well made and likely best drinking mid to late 2022 through 2026+."

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.

Fermented using wild yeast in French oak barriques. Fifty per cent of the wine was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation which softened the wine and added further complexity. The wine was left on its lees undergoing regular stirring before being blended and bottled in February 2021.

Giesen (Marlborough) 2016 Clayvin Chardonnay

5 Stars - Yvonne Lorkin
95/100 - Bob Campbell MW
95/100 - Cameron Douglas MS
5 Stars & 95 Points - Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review 
"Impressively pure, almost luscious chardonnay from the famous hillside Clayvin vineyard. Ripe tree fruit, peach and nectarine flavours with ginger, hazelnut and spicy oak. Surprisingly accessible wine that promises to develop well with bottle age."

Established in 1993, Clayvin Vineyard was Marlborough’s first commercial hillside vineyard. North facing, the vineyard planting is high density with 5,500 vines per hectare, compared with the typical Marlborough planting of 2000 - 2,500 vines per hectare. This density creates natural competition among the vines, reducing vigour, promoting root structure and intensity of flavour.

Selectively hand-picked to ensure the ‘harvest window’ for each sub-block was spot on and the fruit arrived at the winery in optimum condition. PRESSING/ FERMENTATION Whole bunch pressed with the free run juice settled and transferred to oak. Wild yeast starter creating a warm natural fermentation. Fermentation in 1000 litre German Oak ‘Fuder’ barrels, rested on lees for 11 months prior to racking, wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation. Matured in oak for 10 months.

Giesen (Marlborough) 2020 The Brothers Chardonnay

Winery notes 
"Aromas are bright with white peach, meyer lemon, toasted hazelnut and subtle flint. The palate is rich and concentrated with bright zest balancing the fresh sweetness. Ripe lemon and peach flavours, with grapefruit on the finish.

The wine was fermented then matured in predominately French oak hogsheads and puncheons along with 1000L German oak Fuder barrels for 10 months. Oak age varied from one year old barrels, with the majority three year old(78%). This selection was to ensure the wine had subtle oak character which allowed the fruit to shine. The wine was fined and filtered for bottling."

"Playful aromas of yellow apple, baked apple, fleshy white peach, and white spice. Elegant and fresh with the aromas continuing onto the palate, light to medium in weight and a long, oak spiced finish.

Matahiwi (Hawkes Bay) 2020 Holly Chardonnay

95 Points - Sam kim - Wine Orbit

Sourced from two great vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, this is a rich barrel fermented Chardonnay in the classic style with the accent on complexity and fruit weight.

Harvested, pressed and the juice run immediately to French Barriques, 30% of which were new. Fermentation occurred in barrel with both wild and cultured yeasts to add complexity. Once fermentation was complete the wine remained in barrel on full lees for a total of 10 months, with regular stirring and topping to promote texture and autolytic complexity. A portion (approximately 50%) of the barrels went through Malolactic fermentation in spring to enhance mouthfeel and buttery characters.

Perfect with seafood, roast chicken or huhu grubs sautéed in garlic butter. Already enjoyable, this wine will continue to improve over the next 3 to 7 years.

Excellent price for a Chardonnay a this level!
