Label for Wairau Cove Gisborne Chardonnay

Product Details

Tasting Notes

There is so much more to New Zealand than Sauvignon Blanc, and the proof is in this glass.

Made from Chardonnay grapes grown in the Gisborne region in NZ's North Island, this is bright, fresh and full of life.

Gorgeous spiced pineapple and apricot fruit flavours, together with lovely freshness make this a great partner to roast chicken.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 1 year of purchase.

Background

History

In the sixties, Gisborne became a powerhouse wine-growing region. With large yields on the higher cropping grapes, the area gained a reputation as a "bulk wine" distributor. Huge plantings were undertaken by landowners cashing in on the market.Today, Gisborne remains one of New Zealand's most important grape growing regions and is the third largest in the country. Critics, judges and everyday wine lovers continue to be impressed by the quality and variety of wines crafted in the area.
