Te Awa Single Estate Chardonnay has had quite a year. The 2016 vintage won Trophy for Champion Wine of The Show at the Royal Easter Show 2018 and now the 2017 has won the Trophy for Champion Chardonnay at the NZIWS 2018 coming right on the back of a Top Ten, 5 Star Cuisine rating last month.

Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"This wine is a classic expression of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay from a fantastic vintage.  The aromatic nose is reminiscent of citrus blossom and stone fruit supported by notes of crème brulee and grilled nuts. The palate is concentrated and complex with citrus fruit notes being balanced by richness derived from aging on the yeast lees.  As a wine from a top Hawkes Bay vintage, one would expect excellent focus and concentration on the palate, which then leads to a long and sustained finish."

5 Stars, Top 10 & Best Buy, Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, August 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"A familiar style from this label with the expected weight and richness supported by roasted stone fruits and rich baking spices. The fruit and the oak slot neatly into place, giving the wine a defined structure and polish. The wine will benefit from further ageing to develop more complexity and its full potential."

NZIWS 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"A delectable bouquet of stonefruit and vanilla and a vibrant, lively taste with focussed savoury nutty oak lifted by citrus and stonefruit that’s so seductively smooth and expressive as the soft creamy taste lingers."
