A classic New Zealand Chardonnay done just the way you like it…


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"​A classic Clearview Estate Reserve Chardonnay of power & sophistication. Stylish with power & complexity, mealy with stonefruit, ripe tropical flavours & substantial body."


5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, February 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"A classic and much-decorated chardonnay style with tree fruit, peach, citrus and grapefruit nicely balanced by nutty oak and barrel fermentation characters. A delicious wine with subtle power demonstrated by a lingering finish."


Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, April 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"A captivating and complex wine with a bouquet of mineral then layers of lees and fine oak scents, there's complexity and detail with some pure fruit drive – fresh white and yellow peach baked nectarine and sweet grapefruit. I really like the texture and core of fruit with this wine, the flavours of citrus and peach, some fine raw cashew nut from the oak have a positive impact and lasting impact. Fantastic length and persistency, a wine for the cellar or immediate drinking."


NZIWS Judges Comments (2020 Vintage)
"Light gold colour with a desirable mealy, creamy oak scent. It's rich and bold but beautifully balanced in the palate with concentrated peach and a touch of oak spice. Mouth filling and long with a deep savoury presence and a flinty seam that is keeping it quite tight at this stage but there’s so much more to come. Everything is in place to make this a superstar of the vintage. Clearview Estate are the masters of this style of Chardonnay."

5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Combining opulence and grace, this stunning chardonnay shows grilled peach, fig, vanilla and cedar characters on the nose with nuances of grapefruit and gun smoke. The impressively concentrated palate exhibits outstanding intensity and complexity, superbly enhanced by velvety texture and beautifully pitched acidity. A complete package with loads of delicious flavours. At its best: 2022 to 2032."


95/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, January 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Pitch perfect midway perfume of ripe citrus, stone fruit, vanilla cream. Yummo. In the zone. Feels fancy from first whiff. Supple, lush texture, rolls soft and long, gently palate staining, ripe fruit a feature, so too nutty notes, light honeyed characters and finishes with this delightful, lightly salty-refreshing tickle. So even, so well made, so polished; so well done. Great chardonnay."


4 Stars Cuisine NZ Chardonnay Tasting, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"A complex nose resplendent with peaches and other stone fruit which segues seamlessly through to the beautifully balanced palate complete with mouthwatering ripe citrus characters. An expertly crafted partnership of grippy tannin and bright acid lifts this wine high above the others. Perfect deportment."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"For his premium Chardonnay label, winemaker Tim Turvey aims for a ‘big, grunty, upfront’ style – and hits the target with ease. It’s typically a hedonist’s delight – an arrestingly bold, intense, savoury, mealy, complex wine with layers of flavour. Hand-picked from mature vines at Te Awanga, it is fermented and matured in ‘predominantly new’ French oak casks. Still very youthful, the 2019 vintage is powerful, but not heavy, with mouthfilling body, deep, ripe stonefruit flavours, savoury, biscuity, slightly smoky notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+.

    5 star review  Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
