Church Road Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2021


A long lunch, Moreton Bay bug rolls and a glass of this as I reclined on a comfy chair at a rooftop bar. How's good is life? A wonderful drink, it ticks all the boxes for those in search of a generously flavoured Chardonnay.

Squealing Pig Hawkes Bay Syrah 2015

This is the first Syrah release in the range making it five all up now including Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir Rosé and Central Otago Pinot Noir.

Expected Hawkes Bay black pepper holds true. There's a whiff of graphite, red berries, blueberry and dark cherry fruit. Time in the glass brings on a lick of red frog/red raspberry lollies. Charred meats and pan juices play a solid hand.

Dusty tannins skip through but the fruit sticks to the mid palate. A good drink no less.

Drink over the next few years.

89/100 - Good+

Region: Hawke's Bay, NZ
