Our Blackenbrook Chardonnay 2013 is a stylish wine with bright nectarine, pineapple and coconut flavours and an elegant seasoning of nutty oak.

Ideal serving temperature: 15°C


4 Stars or 90/100 Bob Campbell MW
Pure, almost ethereal Chardonnay with apricot, peach and pineapple flavours plus a subtle influence of nutty oak. The wine is not greatly concentrated but it is beautifully balanced with dry and moderately lengthy finish.

• From Sustainable Production, accredited by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand

Weather Conditions: Spring and summer were hot and extremely dry, enhancing great flavours in our grapes. Rain set in just one week before harvest, making for anxious times. Luckily the fine weather returned for another 3 weeks – just long enough to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
