Te Awanga Estate Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2013

The ‘Te Awanga Estate’ brand has been revitalised by Rod McDonald and the wines are part of his complex portfolio which is designed to feature different aspects of the Hawke’s Bay vignoble. Te ‘Te Awanga Estate’ wines come from the 17 ha elevated vineyard and showcase the unique eponymous coastal sub-region with its cooler growing conditions and shallow volcanic loess soils. The 2013 vintage has been hailed as one of the very best, and combined with Rod’s ability to make top Chardonnays, the Te Awanga Estate release is one to anticipate. I review the wine here. The wine has a stylish restraint in its youth, but has a brooding depth that will reveal much more with time in bottle. www.rmwines.co.nz
