Dish tastng panel comments on our wine
Sourced from a 100-acre vineyard west of Hastings in the Mangatahi Valley alongside the Ngaruroro River, the wines produced by the team at Osawa just keep getting better as the years progress and they’re now definitely one to watch from the region. Cameron Douglas MS was impressed with this “modern style of chardonnay with real interest and texture,” while Andrew Parkinson and Yvonne Lorkin both agreed that it also showed tangy fruit concentration, refreshing, cleansing texture and a long satisfying finish.
