This year’s Hawke’s Bay Wine Auction has a tremendous range of offerings, from barrel lots to magnums, food and wine experiences, luxury accommodation in Vanuatu, and a spectacular sculpture by renowned artist David Trubridge.
All the wineries have put their best foot forward, and donated their top of the range wines, making for spectacular buying opportunities for the wine lovers out there.
The generosity of the wineries is what provides the lifeblood for this event, and a browse through the auction catalogue reveals a stunning array of Hawke’s Bays finest Chardonnays, Syrah, red blends and other exotic offerings.
Some of the more intriguing are lots such as Te Awa’s quarter barrique of Tempranillo (Spanish red variety), Squawking Magpies Collaboration of magnums and Martin Poppelwell artwork, the Gimblett Gravels Winegrowers Assemblage red blend (consisting of contributions from all the Gimblett Gravels wine producers), and the Patrons Blend from Te Mata Estate, a Cabernet Franc.
