Te Awanga Estate Mister Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2019 $21.99

Word on the street is that 2019 was a cracker of a year in Hawke’s Bay for chardonnay and this little Rod McDonald creation definitely doesn’t let the side down.  It’s a seriously sippable, grin-inducing burst of nectarine, lemon zest, creamy almond and brulee notes.  There’s even a lick of popcorn and vanilla sneaking around the edges as you sip.  It’ll wow the crowds for sure.
