Hawkes Bay

Hawkes Bay lies in the middle of North Island on the north east coast. It is New Zealand's second largest region, with an incredibly wide range of soil types. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape variety but the long sunshine hours attract a high percentage of later-ripening red grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.

Our selection of wines from Hawkes Bay

Producer: Millton Vineyards
Wine: Riverpoint Organic Viognier 2010
Region: Hawkes Bay Country: New Zealand
Grape: Viognier
Tasting notes: A haunting wine with bristling delicacy, buoyed by a noted mineral edge. Poached pear and warm croissant give a spiced and sappy appeal. The salinity sings the proximity of the vineyard to its maritime environment. We consider the aromatic delight of Viognier will enhance and partner foods high in Umami flavours.

Wine: Shotberry Organic Chardonnay 2010
Region: Hawkes Bay Country: New Zealand

Tasting notes: Aromas of white peach and acacia flowers give a pleasing brightness and energy. A hint of oak adds a wave of texture. The alluvial soils are reflected in the wet-stone minerality of the finish. A glass of Gisborne Sunshine!

A versatile food wine, particularly suitable with seafood, cheeses and summer salads. Serve cool. Suitable for vegetarians.

Producer: Millton Vineyards
Wine: Te Arai Organic Chenin Blanc 2009
Region: Hawkes Bay Country: New Zealand
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Tasting notes: The Millton Vineyard has gained a world-renowned reputation for this unique and classic grape variety. Consistently recognised by international writers as one the best examples in the world, outside of the Loire. The Te Arai vineyard Chenin is included in the book '1001 Wines you must try before you die'. Published by Penguin 2008.

With luminescent golden hue, and aromas of fresh lime zest and fragrant gardenias, the 2009 is a rich, pure and elegant vintage. Subtle notes of orange blossom and bees wax, with evocative aromas of brled pears, allude to the delicacy of the wine.

Producer: Morton Estate
Wine: Morton Estate Pinot Noir 2007
Region: Hawkes Bay Country: New Zealand
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: 2007 was a very hot and dry summer in Hawkes Bay producing above average brix levels. Fortunately for us, our inland, elevated vineyard sites still retain cool nights essential to Pinot Noir fruit character development. Lifted aromas of mocha chocolate, boysenberry and raspberry complement an intense black doris plum character while underlying hints of maraschino cherries are evident. The palate is silky and medium bodied with a lengthy fine-grained tannin finish. A wonderful accompaniment to wild game dishes. May be cellared for the medium term to allow for more earthy characters to develop.
