In stock


The Limeworks obviously works by the way it keeps rolling out the door. With as much value as it has flavour, this is a bigger, fatter styled Chardonnay complete with a good dollop of oak (including 20% new American oak) and a nice vein of limestone driven mineral acidity giving it lift and persistence.

Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Vintage 2016 was tremendous in Hawkes Bay. We harvested our Limeworks block on Friday 8th April and trucked the fruit to Auckland for processing. The ferment was started in tank and then went to barrel to finish. The wine then went through a partial malolactic fermentation. About 20% of the barrels were new American oak with the balance being seasoned American and French oak. The wine stayed in barrel for 11 months.

A melange of vanilla, cream, sweet lemon, grapefruit, hazelnut, and subtle oak. This is a big, rich Chardonnay. It has weight, sweet fruit, beautiful texture and length."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"A delectably expressed chardonnay; the instantly appealing bouquet shows rockmelon, nectarine, nougat, vanilla and toasted hazelnut characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is beautifully weighted and persistent. The wine offers fabulous ripe fruit flavours as well as stylish oak undertones, wonderfully complemented by creamy mouthfeel and bright acidity. At its best: now to 2020."

Sue Courtney, (2016 Vintage)
"A golden coloured wine with an attractive, warm, butter shortbread aroma and a delicate floral allure. Bold toasty oak and golden fruit upfront in the palate falls away to reveal soft creamy notes, a nutty undercurrent, a medley of stonefruit and a lingering apricot glaze."
