Product History
Our pioneering winemaker, Tom McDonald (1907 - 1987) dramatically elevated the quality of winemaking in Hawke's Bay. His lifelong dedication to crafting fine wines helped establish the superb reputation that the region and Church Road are known for. Church Road honours Tom's legacy with an unwavering commitment to pushing the quality boundaries of Hawke's Bay winemaking.

Vineyard History
Church Road embraces Old World winemaking with one arm and technological advancements with the other. And it all begins with fruit grown in Hawke's Bay. Church Road Winery, renowned for being the first in New Zealand to craft exceptional quality Bordeaux style red wine, pioneered the creation of the Hawke’s Bay wine industry. Church Road wines are crafted using the most exceptional quality fruit from vineyards across Hawke’s Bay, together with traditional winemaking techniques to create highly acclaimed award-winning wines.

Tasting note
A medium bodied, supple Chardonnay balanced by a fine seam of fresh acidity with beautifully ripe stonefruit, fresh citrus and subtle floral notes, overlaid with subtle complexities of gunflint, cashew nut, and freshly baked bread. Already drinking exceptionally well, with careful cellaring we expect this wine to continue to mature gracefully for 4 years or more from vintage date.
