Osawa Prestige Collection Chardonnay 2014

This wine displays delicate and complex aromas of white stone fruit, citrus blossoms, and buttered toast. Understated, delicate savory oak influences including hazelnut combine with generous rich fruit and bright acidity on the palate, forming a refined blend of power, style, and length.

$39.30

“This isn’t a ‘come hither’ wine, this an ‘I’m here’ wine. It ticks all the boxes, all the things that people love about Chardonnay are here…nuttiness, richness, oak, this is the perfect ‘I’ve had a long week, it’s Friday, all I want to do is have a glass of Chardonnay.” – Cameron Douglas, MS

Winemaker's Notes

The Prestige Collection wines are produced in a form that allows us to showcase the inherent character of our vineyard. Low crops are a key ingredient in developing fruit with intensity and character. These vines have been controlled to produce no more than 1.5kg per vine. We want wines that exhibit floral like citrus flowers combined with the zest of grapefruit on the nose. A palate that is texturally rich and plush, yet with an attractive tension. Due to what’s going on under the ground, we can deliver a refreshing mineral and acid spine on which the more complex where flavors of nougat integrate with a lingering toastiness.

Osawa Wines

It all started one sunny afternoon in Tokyo when Mr. Osawa, a Japanese wine lover, decided to go travelling with the intention of starting a vineyard and making his own wines. He selected America, Australia and New Zealand as potential areas of interest. A year and many miles later, Mr. Osawa arrived in New Zealand and decided that this is where he would like to make his wine.
