From a teeny tiny 5.5 hectare site in Central Otago and owned by hometown Kiwi girl Philippa (she grew up on an Otago farm) and her French hubby Yannick.
Everything about Domaine Rewa is Aotearoa with a French twist – from the name (Rewa is Philippa’s Granny, and Rewarewa is the native New Zealand tree you’ll see on the label) to the style of wine. Philippa instructed her winemaker to make her Chardy in “a subtle, old world style” which not only kept the Frenchie in the house happy but has impressed numerous judges and critics over the years.
Fully BioGro certified, Philippa and co have planted over 100 olive trees on site while bees and chickens play the part of bringing biodiversity to the vineyard.
Scoring 94/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “Smooth-textured chardonnay with grapefruit, lemon zest, oyster shell, wet slate, lime blossom and spicy French oak flavours with a mouth-watering backbone of taut acidity. Youthful wine that would benefit from a few years bottle age.”
This is a great example of what Central Otago, cool climate Chardonnay is all about. Dry in style with stone fruit and citrus flavours with lots of complexity and and concentration, it’s the perfect style to be serving with fresh seafood and shellfish dishes.
