Judges Comments:

Based on the Wairau Bar, here is a family that has deep connections to the terroir, having descended from the original settlers. Overseen by Haysley MacDonald who was born and bred on the land, this is a producer that is going from strength to strength with well-crafted wines showing the sense of place and excitement of these wines. This Chardonnay is no exception; ripe flavours of lemon curd and grapefruit, a big rich mouthful with a hint of toastiness on the end.

Pairing Recommendation:

A super versatile wine that enhances all sorts of foods from the Sunday roast, pot-luck dinners, Mexican dishes, burger and ribs, pizza and pasta, as well as light lunches and of course picnics. Perfect with chips and dips, antipasti, pre-dinner nibbles and cheese.
