Hawke’s Bay viticulturists say the region’s grape harvest could be it’s best yet, particularly for chardonnay.
Hawke’s Bay wine ambassador Nic Olsen says the juicy grapes have been left happily basking in the sun during the 2018/19 season and although rainfall is slightly up compared to last year – it fell at the right time.
It meant this year’s vintage was looking like it would be simply ideal, he said.
