The Society's Exhibition Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2022
This full and luxurious Hawke's Bay chardonnay, made for us by Mission Estate Winery, was aged for nine months in French oak barrels. The nose has deliciously plush aromas of peach and tropical fruit, with meringue and freshly baked pastry. The palate is lusciously textured, with ample freshness and crisp citrus notes.

Beginning life as a Catholic mission in 1838 Mission Estate is the oldest winery in New Zealand and they have been growing grapes on the site since the missionaries first began tending vines at Meeanee in 1851 and their current site in the Taradale Hills above Napier in 1909.
Today the winery is housed in the restored seminary buildings overlooking the vines and there are three vineyards (Greenmeadows, Mere Road and Gimblett Road) making up the holdings totalling 35 hectares or so. Chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, semillon, viognier, merlot, syrah, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot are all grown.
