Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Fresh yet elegant this Chablis Cru style barrel fermented Chardonnay is rich and complex. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin rind and mango with a hint of flint. Generous oaky flavours with a broad and ample mid palate; flavours of hazelnuts, vanilla, with a whisper of bay leaf, finishing with silky butter characters. A great acidity carries all the flavours and complex notes together, calling for a match with a fish in sauce, a poultry dish or Mexican spiced inspired cuisine. Optimum drinking time is 2021-2025.

The grapes were hand-picked from an organically run vineyard in pristine condition in early March. This vineyard, located on a North facing limestone hillside, constantly gives outstanding quality grapes for both their flavour and intensity. The grapes were full bunch pressed straight into French Oak barrels and fermented with selected yeast until dry, then went through a full malolactic fermentation. A portion of new oak gave beautiful complexity and the wine was bottled in December 2020 after minimal fining and filtration to retain the full flavours and freshness."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Beautifully composed and elegantly expressed, showing white flesh peach, grapefruit, vanilla and cashew notes on the nose with a touch of flinty overtone. It's concentrated and focused on the palate offering impressive persistency and firm structure. At its best: 2022 to 2030."


4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, February 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Just 75 cases were produced of this uber-refreshing chardonnay which is grown in the deep, limestone-laden soils of Hawke’s Bay’s Paki Paki sub-region, just south of Hastings. With its lifted almond, peach and lemon aromatics and creamy, softly oaky mid-palate and saturation of citrus on the finish, it’s a highly refined, elegant style with a marathon-like finish. Superb."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"The subtle, youthful 2020 vintage is a rare wine – only 75 cases were produced. A single-vineyard wine, hand-picked and barrel-fermented, it is full-bodied and very harmonious, with ripe, citrusy, peachy flavours, mealy, biscuity notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and a finely textured finish. A distinctive wine with obvious potential, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+."

    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.

    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.
