Clearview Endeavour Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


One of New Zealand’s highest-priced Chardonnays, this wine is estate-grown at Te Awanga, hand-picked from (Mendoza-clone) vines planted in 1989, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for an unusually long period in barrels. It typically makes a very bold statement. The 2018 vintage (5*) is a powerful, yet refined wine. Bright, light yellow/green, it is sturdy, with concentrated, youthful flavours of stone-fruit, seasoned with biscuity oak, impressive complexity, slightly smoky notes, and a long, very harmonious finish. Already drinking well, it’s a very age-worthy wine; best drinking 2022+.
