Nikau Point Reserve Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


Nikau Res Chard


Vintage 2017

Grilled peaches, citrus and roasted nut aromas. The palate is medium bodied with great textural complexity. Ripe melon, vanilla and butterscotch flavours are complemented by the toasty oak.

VINTAGE 2012

“Subtle aromas of dried apricots precede the ripe stonefruit flavours and nutty elements. The oak is gentle and the texture good thereby creating an easy drinking style that will satisfy many.”
– TizWine Awards

VINTAGE 2011

“An opulent nose of dried apricots, honey and vanilla carries through well to the palate where it is joined by balanced oak, firm acidity and bold alcohol. Big, weighty wine – especially good with food.”
– TizWine Awards

VINTAGE 2010

“Hawkes Bay chardonnay that is quite perfumed with bold stone fruit in the palate allied to vanilla oak and nutty elements. Overally its extremely well balanced, elegant and lengthy. Excellent value.”
