Pukeora Chardonnay

Fresh fruit driven style, very easy drinking and terrific value.

Pukeora is based in Central Hawkes Bay on a limestone hillside. The name means 'hill of health' in Maori, chosen as the winery sits on a panoramic hilltop where the old Sanetorium was built in the early 1900s. Best known for their Chardonnay and Bordeaux style red wine. Recommended by WineNZ as a 'Value Plus' wine as an indicator of excellent value for money.
