Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​Perhaps more so than any other variety in Hawke’s Bay, Chardonnay can make great wines with very little intervention from the Winemaker. Hand harvested fruit from our Tuki Tuki vineyard is whole bunch pressed and the juice run directly to barrel with no prior clarification step or any additions. Once in barrel, the juice is simply left to undergo wild fermentation and a subsequent 11 month maturation period. The result is a powerful yet elegant, age worthy and complex Chardonnay with great depth and character.

A flavourful, multidimensional Chardonnay with a core of ripe stone fruit and fragrant citrus, overlaid with aromas of roasted nuts, toasted brioche, subtle creaminess and a hint of smoke. The palate is powerful yet restrained, with fine texture, great length and balanced fresh acidity."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2015 Vintage)​
"Ripe peach, nectarine and apricot flavours seasoned with brioche-like yeast lees, nutty oak, struck flint, mineral and a suggestion of sizzled butter. An intense and appealing wine that, though approachable now, promises to develop well with further bottle age."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2015 Vintage)​​
"The fantastically intense rich malty aroma is embossed with hazelnut and funky yeast and gun smoke notes and it is full and rounded and harmonious in its flow with malt, nuts, toast and a spicy zesty brightness to the finish, all the while those lovely savoury, funky, flinty notes in behind. Church Road describes as complex and multi-dimensional – I agree, absolutely."
