Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List


Te Awa Single Estate Chardonnay is a force to be reckoned with. This has been hugely popular recently especially with its price reduction taking it to $20.00. With impeccable pedigree it was selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand list and is now well and truly recognised as one of New Zealand's premium Chardonnays. The superb 2020 from an excellent vintage follows on from highly regarded previous vintages and offers a top notch Chardonnay experience.


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"This elegantly styled wine displays distinctive aromas of lemon verbena, peach and baking spice. The palate is full bodied with a touch of creaminess and smoky French oak supported by fresh natural acidity.

Te Awa Chardonnay is sourced from several of their best vineyard blocks, located on free draining gravel soils. These vineyard blocks grow three clones of Chardonnay which all contribute to the balance and complexity of the final wine. Most of these vineyard blocks are dry farmed and the grapes are grown organically. The 2020 vintage is no exception.

The 2020 vintage followed a warm and dry summer in Hawke’s Bay which has produced another outstanding Te Awa Chardonnay. In late February, the grapes were hand-picked in perfect condition and made the short trip to the winery to be loaded into the press as whole bunches. After a gentle pressing the juice was run directly to French oak hogshead barrels. The juice in the barrel fermented spontaneously with wild yeast and some underwent a natural malolactic fermentation. The young wine then stayed in barrel for 10 months with regular lees stirring, before being blended and prepared for bottling."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"The refined 2020 vintage was estate-grown and hand-harvested in the Gimblett Gravels, and fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak hogsheads. Bright, light yellow/green, it is still very youthful, with concentrated, ripe, peachy, citrusy flavours, finely integrated toasty oak, slightly smoky notes, and fresh acidity. It needs time; open 2023+."


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, July 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Another fine example of Chardonnay from the team making Te Awa. Aromas and flavours of fresh peaches and grapefruit, cashew nut oak and baking spices with a touch of smoke. Fine wood tannins with flavours of stone fruits and citrus, vanilla and a whisper of bacon (oak), youthful acid line, balanced and well made. Best drinking from purchase and through 2024."

    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've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. 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

    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.
