There’s a really long hang time for Chardonnay here. It’s picked three weeks later here than the inland blocks, even though flowering is at the same time.
90/100 score and also a superb result on Vivino.com too.
Te Awanga is a beautifully rich white wine with sweet scents of citrus, vanilla and crème brulee followed by white peaches and a bright acidity on the palate.
This premium New Zealand Chardonnay should be circa £14-16 if you can find it but we have sourced some where we can offer you savings of over 40% at £9.55 - also available in the Chardonnay Case deal.
