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.
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.
