If you like your Chardonnays on the lighter side, step aside. Clearview’s Reserve Chardonnay is unashamedly a bigger, bolder, more powerful style! An iconic NZ Chardonnay with a huge following and listed in Michael Cooper’s prestigious “NZ Super Classics” list.
Produced from vineyards that sit right on the Te Awanga coastline there in Hawke’s Bay, from 28 year old vines, 10 different soil types, 4 separate picking times, 10 barrel makers, 3 yeast strains and wild yeasts – wine maker Tim Turvey doesn’t do anything half arsed when it comes to his Reserve Chardonnay that’s for sure.
Enjoy it over the next several years and watch it mellow and develop. Chardonnays like this are great food wines – try chicken, pork and seafood (like crayfish).
