Refined and fruit-driven, New Zealand Chardonnay is mouth-filling, with concentrated citrus and bright tropical fruit.
The versatility of the Chardonnay grape makes it a perfect canvas for our viticulturists and winemakers to craft masterpieces.
A wide-range of Chardonnay styles are produced in New Zealand, from fruit-driven and unoaked, to luscious examples with complexity, elegance, and a touch of oak.
New Zealand Chardonnay strongly reflects our unique terroir, and the huge diversity within the different regions.
During the 1990s, plantings of this internationally fashionable variety exceeded those of every other grape, today top-quality Chardonnay can be found in every New Zealand wine region.
Known as ‘the winemaker’s grape’ due to its relatively neutral fruit profile and adaptable nature, Chardonnay lends itself to nearly all winemaking tricks of the trade.
Its noble character still shines through in its ability to reflect terroir, as well as age gracefully.
