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.
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."
