This family owned business has the accolade of making the most award winning wines in New Zealand. The fruit consists of parcels grown in Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and a small portion from Marlborough. This inter-regional blend produces a wine that has the full spectrum of Chardonnay flavours. Cool fermentation ensured that the fresh aromas and flavours were retained.
