Neck of the Woods Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2017


AJ Johnson has always had a hankering to have his own wine, ever since working at Mouthford in North Canterbury. A successful television industry man for 15 years, he launched his own label ‘Neck of the Woods’ earlier this year with a Gibbston-sourced Central Otago Pinot Noir from the 2016 vintage, made by James McElrea (click here to see my review). AJ has made a number of strong grower contacts not only in Central Otago, but also in Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough, and will have wines from these regions coming. Here, I review the new Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2017, also made by James McElrea. AJ has engaged the services of Jen Parr for future wines. This is an exciting negociant business to follow.
