Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2020


The Church Road Grand Reserve Chardonnay has carved out an enviable reputation as one of Hawkes Bay and New Zealand's very best.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Church Road Grand Reserve wines are produced only in exceptional vintages. The very best low-cropping vineyard blocks are targeted for selective hand-harvesting to yield wines with the greatest possible flavour, depth and concentration. In the winery these wines are made using small batch, traditional winemaking techniques that emphasise texture, structure and subtle complexity, while still letting the fruit shine through.

A flavourful, multidimensional Chardonnay with a core of ripe stonefruit 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."


Reviews for the 2018 vintage below…


5 Stars Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, July 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"The Church Road Grande Reserve Chardonnay 2018 is made from a blend of grapes grown on 50% on Tuki Tuki vineyard and 50% on a vineyard next to Te Mata Estate. It’s a creamy, smooth-textured chardonnay, with subtle tree fruit and peach fruit flavours interwoven with fresh-baked bread and toasted nut flavours. A fine-grained, moderately concentrated wine supported by deliciously fruity acidity."

97/100 IWSC 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"An intense lemony, brioche, succulent stone fruit nose is followed by a luscious full-bodied, complex and layered palate, with vanilla, lees, mineral and a touch of well-crafted reduction. It evolves beautifully in the mouth, suggesting improvement is still to come."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"This very classy wine sits above the McDonald Series (but below Tom) in the Church Road hierarchy. Hand-picked in the Tuki Tuki Valley and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels (30 per cent new), the 2017 vintage combines power and elegance. Tightly structured, with a slightly smoky bouquet, it has concentrated, youthful grapefruit and peach flavours, well-integrated biscuity oak, excellent complexity and a finely poised, lasting finish. Fine value."

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
