Leveret Estate Chardonnay 2019 in the New World Wine Awards Top 50

Posted on

We’re so proud to announce our Leveret Estate Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2019 won a Gold Medal, scored 95 points and placed in the New World Wine Awards Top 50.

Chair of Judges, Jim Harré comments “If you’re looking for that last minute dinner party wine, the one where you need to impress, cover all the bases of acceptable flavours and complete the illusion that you’re in control of your life, then here is the wine. Pale yellow with white peach and balanced vanilla oak, the palate is creamy with ripe stone fruit and a striking tension between the fruit, acidity and tannins, creating a seductive harmony. Great length and a fabulous food match.”

More than 1,200 entries were submitted by 165 wineries from across New Zealand and overseas. The wine is available for purchase at New World stores nationwide for the next five weeks, sporting a shiny Gold medal.
