Hawke’s Bay Buttery Chardonnay

Hawke’s Bay Buttery Chardonnay

The Taste Collection is a celebration of the generous and distinct flavours that have made Selaks Wines so extraordinary and sought after for more than 85 years.

2022 was a stunning year for Hawkes Bay across all varietals. A very dry and warm growing period over summer that continued right through the autumn harvest window resulted in fruit with great concentration of flavour, and the grapes were harvested in perfect condition at optimal ripeness.

On arrival from the Vineyards being destemmed, the fruit was crushed and gently pressed. Only the first juice from the press - the "free run" was used in this blend. Clarified juice was carefully fermented under controlled conditions, with the aim of maximizing primary fruit character.  After fermentation, juice underwent oak maturation, adding depth and subtle oak notes to the vibrant fruit flavours.

Tasting notes

Colour Colour Mid Straw.
Aroma Aroma & Taste We’ve called this Chardonnay buttery because it is smooth, creamy and simply melts in your mouth. The beautifully integrated toasty oak results in flavours of brioche and vanilla, while still enabling the delightful ripe stone fruit characters to shine through.
Pairing Pairing Stunning with crayfish or pumpkin risotto.
