Trophy for Champion Chardonnay – NZ Organic Wine Awards 2021
Gold Medal – NZ Organic Wine Awards 2021


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Pale lemon colour. Aromatics of brioche, roasted cashew and corn husk. Underpinned by lime zest, fennel fronds, & pink grapefruit. Palate is expansive & rich, crisp citrus zing and generous finish with signature fine-grained oak.

2019 was a small year for Chardonnay, due to limited flowering which required careful shoot selection and meticulous canopy management, allowing the best fruit to ripen over a settled autumn. Organically managed, the combination of undervine cultivation and fewer irrigation cycles has driven the Chardonnay roots deep into the soil. Our Chardonnay is a blend of two main vineyard blocks. One block is limestone dominant, while the other is clay. The two clones, Mendoza & Clone 95, flourish differently in both blocks. Mendoza is the cornerstone of our Chardonnay. The clone is known for its small, open grape bunches, intense fruit-driven flavours and chalky minerality.

We hand-picked our Chardonnay blocks and processed without the use of additives. We pressed our Limestone block as whole bunches and pressed our Clay block after foot crushing. Each block was fermented separately in French oak barriques without intervention, allowing the wild yeasts and bacteria to perform primary and malo-lactic fermentation through to completion. Barrel aged for 10 months before estate bottled without fining."


Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, April 2022 (2019 Vintage)
"Aromas of mineral and ripe citrus fruits, lemon and quince, then peach and chalk, oak then fruit spice. I can’t decide what I like more on the palate, the texture of flavour – this really is a delicious wine. Its story is reflects time and place, pure fruit flavours, a fine chalky texture then a judicious and well stated use of oak – meaning just the right measure. Acidity and fine tannins deliver mouthfeel while the core mineral of stone and chalk layers in then fruit flavours soak the palate in charm and elegance. Delicious, youthful, varietal and complex. Best drinking from 2022 through 2029+."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"A wonderfully styled and expressed chardonnay, showing grilled stone fruit, fig, lemon peel and vanilla characters with nuances of cashew and brioche. It's concentrated and richly textured on the palate delivering expansive mouthfeel and creamy texture, leading to an impressively long refined finish. At its best: now to 2027."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 vintage of this organically certified wine was hand-picked, barrel-fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). A powerful, pale gold wine, it is fragrant, weighty and fleshy, with rich, ripe stonefruit flavours, slightly toasty notes, a vague hint of honey, and strong drink-young appeal. Best drinking 2022+."


5 Stars & 19-/20 (95) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, February 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Bright, light yellow with some depth and a gold hue, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full with power, apricot aroma, lemon tart melded with nutty and toasty oak elements, unfolding a flinty mineral edge. Medium-full bodied, well-rounded aromas of apricot and peach, entwined with lemon tart, nougat, toasty oak; flinty edge linger on the finish with spices. The wine shows multi-layers of complexity; pristine fruit and the barrel elements are in a happy marriage, elevating both components in harmony. The creamy mouthfeel flows along a delicate, chalky thread, balanced on a flattering acid precision. This is an opulent style Chardonnay with multi-layers of interest, chalky minerals and pristine fruit concentration. Match with scampi and crayfish macaroni & cheese over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, wild fermented to 13.5% alc, full MLF, aged in French oak for 10 months, 20% new barriques. BioGro organic certified. Vegan friendly."

  • Relatively new to wine and liquor, but I have found the experience of trying new wines and liquor enjoying with the help from the staff at Vino Fino. Very friendly and tolerant of my basic questions!

    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!

  • Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

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
