Charismatic founder Tim Turvey was not to be discouraged when told the site at Te Awanga in Hawkes Bay was too cold to grow grapes. He went ahead and planted anyway, and 25 years on, we're glad he did.
Happy to plant a wide range of grape varieties, and to experiment with techniques in the winery, Clearview make wines worth hunting down.
An incredibly popular light bodied red wine from a blend of Bordeaux varietals and chambourcin, an old French grape variety.
It's a super refreshing, fruity rose made in an off dry style for immediate drinking, ideally lightly chilled. An opulent array of raspberry and cherry balanced by a long refreshing finish.
Best consumed while young and fruity.
