Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List


With impeccable pedigree and selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand list, Te Awa Single Estate Chardonnay is a force to be reckoned with. It is now well and truly recognised as one of New Zealand's premium Chardonnays. The superb 2019 from an excellent vintage follows on from the highly regarded previous vintages and offers a top notch Chardonnay experience.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The Te Awa vineyard has been producing fine Chardonnay for over 25 years and the 2019 vintage is another stellar example of Hawkes Bay Chardonnay. On the nose are distinctive notes of citrus blossom, stone fruit and grilled nuts. The mouthfeel is full-bodied, with a slight creaminess offsetting the natural acidity which provides freshness and length to the palate.

Sourced from several of the winemakers best vineyard blocks on free-draining gravel soils, each block has been planted with its own clone to match varying soil patterns across the vineyard. This blend contains three clones of Chardonnay which contribute to balance and complexity. Intensive management during the season resulted in low yielding vines which produced high-quality parcels of fruit.

2019 was an excellent growing season in Hawkes Bay with the Chardonnay grapes picked in optimum condition. The hand-picked grapes made the short trip to the winery and were loaded into the press as whole bunches. After a gentle pressing, the juice was run directly to French oak Hogshead barrels (35% new). The barrels were allowed to ferment with the wild yeasts that came in from the vineyard and some underwent a natural malolactic fermentation to soften the palate and add richness to the wine."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Fragrant, with 'struck-match' aromas, the 2018 vintage is a mouthfilling wine with generous, ripe stone-fruit flavours, balanced acidity, and accentuated, smoky notes adding complexity. A powerful style statement, it is a lively, age-worthy wine, likely to be at its best 2021+."


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."

    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  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  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.
