Organised Chaos Chenin Blanc 2020

“Ripe Chenin Blanc from a very favourable vintage with apple, a suggestion of honey and anise and spice flavours. An initial suggestion of sweetness is balanced by vibrant acidity to give a dry-ish finish.” Bob Campbell MW

"Our Chenin Blanc is grown by Ian and Linda Quinn at Two Terraces Vineyard, on the Mangatahi Terraces, 15km further inland from the Gimblett Gravels. The Managatahi Terraces are ancient river terraces formed over thousands of years by the Ngaruroro River, which now flows more than 30m below the vineyard. These terraces are made up of greywacke and gravel under volcanic, stony, silt based, topsoil. The Chenin Blanc block is under organic conversion, and will be certified in 2023." Organised Chaos

Organised Chaos is so much more than just a wine label to Hayden Perry (OC's Winemaker). It’s kids, friends, family, work, play. It’s the highs and the lows, the good and the not so good. It’s Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. It’s growing grapes, it’s making wine, it’s working hard. It’s life.

These wines are a celebration of the chaos that is, and a tip of the cap to the chaos that was. They are a reflection of the moments, inspirations and influences, of my journey throughout the world of winegrowing, organised into my personal expression of the wines that Hawke’s Bay does best.

Working with growers that share my passion and respect for the land, the Organised Chaos wines are a fresh, vibrant, and textural expression of a modern day Hawke’s Bay.
