Te Awanga Estate Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2016

05-Apr-2017
The Te Awanga Estate wines are Rod McDonald’s more elegant premium bottlings which aim to capture the style of the cooler coastal climate of Hawke’s Bay. They feature the fruit rather than winemaking artefact, and in doing so can show greater aromatics and finesse than the more powerful wines from further inland which are warmer in style. Chardonnay is one variety that expresses itself well in many climates, and the Te Awanga Estate wine earns it place in the Rod McDonald portfolio for its refined style. Here, I review the new release from the 2016 vintage, deemed a very favourable one for the variety in Hawke’s Bay. www.rmwines.co.nz
