Hawke's Bay White Wines
Hawke's Bay Chardonnay
Hawke's Bay has consistently produced New Zealand's leading examples of Chardonnay and has 32% of New Zealand's total producing hectares for this variety in 2016. Hawke's Bay's Chardonnays are rich, complex wines, with distinctive flavours of citrus and ripe stonefruit. Unoaked or "natural" Chardonnay is also growing in popularity.
I believe that Hawke's Bay is making exquisite Chardonnay with beautiful fruit definition and suberb freshness. They represent astonishing value.

Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc
Hawke's Bay Sauvignon Blanc provides an alternative style, retaining the freshness typical of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, while exhibiting ripe, tropical fruit flavours.
