2018 Heretaunga Chardonnay

$ 40.00 NZD

Vibrant pale straw colour with some green tinges. Fresh and fruit driven, almost Chablis-like in style. Complex and light on its feet. Vibrant acidity balanced by a creamy, lingering texture.

The fruit is sourced from two vineyards in Hawke's Bay, 20-year-old Clone 15 and 95 vines that are dry farmed on a silty loam over gravel with some limestone influence, and old Mendoza vines grown on river terrace soil, light loam over gravel.

2018 Omahu Cantera

$ 60.00 NZD

A deep, intense ruby red colour with complex dark red fruits predominant on the nose. A beautiful meld of spicy berry aromas with liquorice, sweet oak and vanilla in the background. The three varieties in this wine complement each other in both aroma and palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers power and structure, the Tempranillo, juiciness and flesh with the Cabernet Franc adding aromatic lift and freshness.

A unique Hawke's Bay blend with the structure that will allow it to age for at least 10 years.

2019 Howell Vineyard Chardonnay

$ 60.00 NZD

Pale lemon colour with hints of straw. Lovely aromas of fresh white peach, fresh cashew nut, toasted brioche and crystallised lemon. Complex and complete. The palate is generous and open with delicious flavours of grilled peach, vanilla bean, crunchy toasted oats alongside a savoury saline lemon pith character that provides length and composure. Drink thru to 2026.

2019 Omahu Cantera

$ 60.00 NZD

Very dense, almost opaque black cherry colour. Hedonistic aromas of blackcurrant, cigar box, vanilla, cedar and violets provide an overwhelming but composed impact on the nose. The palate is similarly generous with abundant flavours of blueberry, dark plum and blackcurrant alongside a creamy vanilla and warm pastry like texture, delicious fine pencil lead and toast, finishing with the distinctive iodine and stony texture of fine Gimblett Gravels red wine.
