Poderi Crisci Chardonnay
- New Zealand, 750ml
A very nice minerality with yellow plums, mirabelles and nectarines, then also grilled almonds, marzipan and honeycomb, beeswaxy characteristics. Full silky palate with great weight and simultaneously light, due to the beautiful balance and structure of the wine. On the palate, ripe nectarines and then stonefruits to start, followed by more citrus, mainly mandarin and orange, finishing flinty and dry with excellent length.

"This Chardonnay is produced in the true Burgundian style with a nod to the Friuli region of Italy. Whilst our wines are like our children, and we know we shouldn’t have favourites, it is impossible not to get excited with every new vintage of Chardonnay, even while it is still in the barrel. This wine transcends the fruit and displays all the myriads of characteristics that one would expect from a great wine." Poderi Crisci

A family-owned vineyard with flair for all things Italian and a passion for traditional winemaking, this slice of Tuscany in the infamous Waiheke Island wine region will transport you to a simpler time just by tasting their wine!
Napoli-raised Antonio Crisci arrived in New Zealand in the early 90’s, quickly making a name for himself in the Auckland hospitality scene while setting his sights on a winery where tradition would meet innovation and give people a taste for distinctly Italian wine blends. Planting the very first merlot vines in early 2000, the family have stayed true to old world styled wine and grape varieties, while providing the ultimate winery experience for locals and tourists alike.
Time-honoured traditions and commitment to flavour are just a few reasons why “things just taste better at Poderi Crisci”.
