Pirinoa Road Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2018 is a gorgeous complex offering; the fragrant bouquet shows ripe peach, rockmelon, nougat and brioche characters with subtle vanilla and hazelnut notes. The palate is succulent and beautifully weighted, delivering delectable fruit flavours together with stylish oak infusion.
92/100 Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)
"Ripe, textural chardonnay with peach, toffee, hazelnut and spicy oak flavours. A seamless wine in a soft, rich and moderately weighty style. Accessible now but should develop well in bottle. 05 NOV 2018."
Sunny Hawkes Bay is along the eastern coast of New Zealand's north island. It is here where some of the most fruit-forward wines come from. They are known for their tropical Chardonnays and their juicy reds.
Enjoy with cheese platters, chicken pasta or slow cooked pork belly.
