Bob Campbell MW rates Church Road as Grandeur with 96 point score

Our Church Road Grand Reserve Hawke's Bay Chardonnay 2015 has been rated 'Chardonnay Grandeur' wine in The Real Review and Cellar Talk Wines.

A remarkable score of 96 points brings Church Road Grand Reserve Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2015 a five star rating as ‘Chardonnay Grandeur’ in the latest edition of The Real Review and Cellar Talk Wines.


“Ripe peach, nectarine and apricot flavours seasoned with brioche-like yeast lees, nutty oak, struck flint, mineral and a suggestion of sizzled butter. An intense wine that, though approachable now, promises to develop well with further bottle age”.


Bob also suggests a food match of pan-fried snapper, cuttlefish, capsicum, chorizo and white beans- and we couldn’t agree more.
