Rich, luscious and bloody good value.

Leveret Estate Chardonnay

2022, Hawkes Bay New Zealand
  • Made by the crowd that used to own Morton Estate
  • Rich, creamy, full bodied, barrel fermened style Hawke's Bay Chardonnay
  • The bells 'n' whistles treatment of a wine worth way more - 9 months in barrel, lees stirring (a technique to add richness and complexity)
New World Wine Awards Silver
RRP $21.99


The story of Leveret Estate is long winded and, in all honesty, will bore your socks off. Something about a leveret being a baby hare, three hares featuring on the label, their ears connecting to make a triangular symbol, that symbol was used by an old tin merchant, it goes on and on.

What’s more interesting is Leveret Estate is actually owned by the guys that used to own Morton Estate and if you know anything about Hawke’s Bay and Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay you’ll know Morton made their name off making bloody good Chardonnay – including winning Best Chardonnay in the World back in the 90s!

This is a Chardonnay that overs the years has ticked the boxes and then some for a sub-$20 Chardonnay.

It’s had all the treatment of a wine worthy of a $20 plus price tag. Nine months in barrel, regular lees stirring (a technique winemakers use to add complexity), a few years bottle age under its belt now, she’s your rich and creamy style Chardonnay full of citrus and stonefruit flavours and its hit its straps nicely. A real bargain, hop to it.
