‘The Lodge’ Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines. The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Roman mythology alongside Bacchus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company; to us here at Kwoff, the holy trinity. The vineyards and winery are based near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
Grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle and Mangatahi sub-regions. The warm, even growing conditions of Bridge Pa contrast with cooler conditions at Mangatahi, which produce very different fruit, allowing a wine with layers of flavour, complexity, and interest to be created.
A proper Chardonnay that oozes fruit flavour and aromas, ‘The Lodge’ Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay 2016 has ripe stone fruit and toasted oak aromas with concentrated nectarine, peach and citrus flavours on the palate. A subtle background of almonds and toast make up a wine which is sophisticated, rich and mouth filling. Summer salads, fish, chicken and pasta dishes.
