No other top tier kiwi Chardonnay has quite the cult following as Clearview Reserve, and it has long been a favourite with us and our customers! It has had a very long successful career in Wine Shows locally and abroad, and this new vintage has started exceptionally well having only been released six weeks ago!
The first Reserve Chardonnay from Clearview was produced back in 1991, so you could say they've had ample time to perfect their style! And what a distinctive style it is, especially given the benefit of vine age with vineyards that have almost three decades under their belt!
Hawke's Bay has an outstanding reputation for Chardonnay in general, but what sets Clearview apart from the rest of the pack is their stunning location. The ruggedly beautiful coastline of Te Awanga brings a wonderful maritime climate that the rest of the Bay doesn't experience. The beautiful sea breeze acts as a moderator that cools and protects the fruit. This retains the acid structure and creates a wine with both immense power and incredible balance. Head inland to the likes of the Gimblett Gravels and there's no breeze to be seen. This means the temperature is hotter and the fruit converts more sugar. Great for bigger riper flavours, but with less balance, less refinement and a shorter window for ageing.
This is the wine that big chardonnay lovers covet, and squirrel away in their cellars year on year. The 2019 is as good a vintage as we can remember from the talented team at Clearview, and we expect these stocks to be snapped up quickly. Opulent, lavish, and hugely concentrated, brimming with the usual hallmarks of toasty vanilla oak and butterscotch from the generous proportion of new oak barrels used, with a cleansing sweep of balanced citrus and nectarine acidity, and a hauntingly long finish.
This chardonnay offers one of those rare but truly defining wine moments, and at our once a year price of just $40.90 you'll kick yourself for missing this unique opportunity when elsewhere you can pay up to $62 a bottle.
It's a wine we all wish we could afford to drink everyday, but at this price get your fill as a special Christmas treat and give your family and friends a sublime wine experience they'll never forget!
