In theory, this rich and buttery Chardonnay produced by the very experienced Ant McKenzie (think Dry River, Spy Valley and Framingham), from carefully selected vineyards in coastal Hawkes Bay, should be very good. And in practice, it is!


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Medium straw colour with green hints. Ripe nectarine and peach notes on the nose. Savoury fermentation nuances along with the creamy vanilla characters from the barrels support the fruit and bring complexity to the wine. The palate is full bodied and rich with a broad, slippery texture. Browned butter, toasted cashew and canned peach notes all add interest. These layers of richness come mainly from perfectly ripened grapes, sweet French oak barrels and warm fermentation temperatures. The finish is long and rich."


Reviews for the 2019 vintage below…


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 20120 (2019 Vintage)
"Beautifully ripe and inviting, the bouquet shows yellow peach, rockmelon, vanilla and roasted nut characters, followed by a succulent palate that delivers excellent weight and rounded mouthfeel. It's creamy and flavoursome, making it fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2023."

    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  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!
