Quarter Acre
2019 Chardonnay

Grapes for this wine come from two vineyards:  Doc’s Block by the sea at Haumoana, where the vines are about 20 years old, and an organically certified block by the Ngaruroro River where the vines are 12 years old .

Subtle mineral, toast and peach characters on the nose, lemon curd and a precise, taut palate. Packed full of Hawke’s Bay, this Chard is one chalky, complex bad boy!

The Word.

  • James Suckling, 92 points.
  • Michael Cooper, 4.5 stars.
  • Bob Campbell MW, 91 points.  “Ripe, yet restrained chardonnay with grapefruit, citrus, melon, struck-fling, ginger, pepper and spice flavours supported by fine acidity…”
  • NZ Wine Rater, 93 points. “…Overt, and generous with lashings of everything.  Fans of the genre will love this.”
