Leveret Estate Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2020

$19.99$113.94

The Leveret brand is a descendant of the award-winning Coniglio range. The word “leveret” means young hare, three of which can be found dancing on the bottle’s label. The ears of the hares connect creating a triangular symbol that was used by the tin merchants of Devon, traders on the Silk Road.

With it’s own sense of history, and coming from an up-standing family, we’re excited to present a premium and reserve option for the Leveret brand.

Clear

The aromas are fresh and vibrant, displaying stone fruit and ground almond. Fresh layers of tropical melon and nectarine on the palate, combined with generous, mouth-filling weight and richness gained from 12 months barrel ageing sur lie. This wine is drinking well now but will cellar for up to ten years.

Wine Review

"This is attractively fruited and nicely fragrant on the nose showing golden peach, pineapple, vanilla and roasted cashew notes, leading to a flavoursome palate that's succulent and smooth. Well supported by creamy texture and spicy nuances, making it delightfully appealing. At its best: now to 2024."

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Calm, elegant and fragrant with aromas of peaches and whipped cream, vanilla and apple, wood smoke and nut. On the palate - full bodied expression with flavours in reserve of the nose - wood smoke and vanilla, apple and peach. A mix of wood tannins and medium+ acidity layer in mouthfeel and contrast while the core of fruits showcase the youth and freshness. A balanced and well made wine with plenty of length and lots of harmony. Best drinking from purchase and through 2025+."

Food Pairings

Superb with chicken and creamy risotto, or smoked salmon.

Vineyards and Winemaking

This wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes grown in two of our Hawke’s Bay vineyards - Riverview and Kinross. The grapes for this wine were hand harvested and transported to our Riverview winery. Some of the fruit was pressed direct to barrel where it was allowed to undergo wild fermentation. Following fermentation, the wine was inoculated for Malolactic fermentation. After approximately 12 months in oak, the wine was transferred to our Katikati winery for finishing, fining, and bottling.
