Te Awanga Estate Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2017
Premium grapes were first grown in Te Awanga at the beginning of last century. The warm coastal climate, gentle sea breezes and shallow clay soils combine to produce award-winning wines of great varietal flavour and finesse.
Hawkesbridge Reserve Marlborough Pinot Gris 2017
This wowed the Tasting Panel as soon as the bottle was opened and quickly made the Wine of the Year Finalist list. It has classic super-ripe pear and baked apple aromas are backed by an intriguing suggestion of spicy shortbread. It has been made just off-dry, but there is an impressive amount of fruit concentration on the palate along with the variety's typically complex, oily texture. It's destined for greatness.
Aspiring Flats Central Otago Rosé 2017
"Very good entry with intense flavours and excellent concentration and while there is clearly some residual sugar it is beautifully balanced by tannin. Excellent drinking." NZWS Tasting Panel
