Cameron Douglas, MS was impressed with the calibre of the wines from the 2022 vintage:

“I stand by my statement made this time last year when after tasting the range of wines and style for the Hawke’s Bay Annual Chardonnay Collection that these wines stand up to many I have encountered from overseas producers, including Burgundy.

As a wine taster and reviewer of all-things-beverage, one of the most interesting and complex varieties I get excited about is Chardonnay. This year’s challenge was another showcase revealing Hawkes Bay’s diversity of styles and reflective of the 2022 vintage in a bottle.”

 The 2022 Collection showcases outstanding quality, presenting a diverse range of styles that reflect the unique terroir of various subregions within Hawke’s Bay, and attests to the remarkable expertise and skill of the collection’s winemakers.
