Description

Clearview founder and owner Tim Turvey made an inspired decision to plant his vineyards on Hawkes Bay’s Te Awanga Coast back in 1988... the hot daytime temperatures are perfectly contrasted by cooler night-time sea breezes ensuring higher natural acidity in his always perfectly ripe fruit. Clearview Reserve is the benchmark for his Chardonnay... next in line his Beachhead, would be as good as many other wineries Reserve wines. 100% barrel fermented with a healthy % of new oak... it has a generous and layered palate that will impress. Here’s what two of NZ’s leading critics have to say about Clearview Chardonnay... "… this small, quality-focused producer consistently makes one of the country's biggest and most robust chardonnays.” Bob Campbell, Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine “…a hedonist’s delight.” - Michael Cooper

Smells

Seductive, complex aromas of grapefruit, fennel, freshly buttered toasted sourdough, stone fruit, burnt match with smoky nuances.

Tastes

A rich, creamy texture with mealy, savoury flavours supported by peach skin and fresh nectarines. Well balanced with great poise, where the richness is beautifully contrasted by lemony acids and tangy stone fruits finishing with length. Will match well with fatty seafood, poultry and pork dishes now through 2025.
