Made by the highly reputable, super popular and rapidly expanding Yealands Estate comes this laid back, easy drinking, fruit driven style Chardonnay from the East Coast. Clearwater Cove Chardonnay
Hmm, but which East Coast is that? Well, the Yealands crew have dropped a few hints. “From the most earterly tip of New Zealand’s North Island” – so if you flunked geography at school we’ll help you out, it’s probably Gisborne. Or Hawke’s Bay. Or a little bit of both.
Either way if you’re after a Chardonnay that’s totally easy going at a everyday quaffer price, you’re in the right spot. A portion of the wine has been aged in oak but don’t worry about that, this is all about a fresh, fruit driven style Chardy. There’s stonefruit and tropical fruit flavours going on here with a crisp finish.
