Medium bodied and fruit forward with classic Hawkes Bay varietal characters. This is a rich, well balanced wine with flavours of orange zest, ripe peach and citrus. Barrel fermentation contributes vanillin, spice and toasted almond notes.
The winery writes "This ripe Chardonnay shows nectarine and citrus aromas coupled with toasted grains, caramel and spice from French oak. Stonefruit and biscuit flavours are balanced by a long citrus finish with hints of toffee and caramel. Ideal to enjoy on its own or a perfect complement to seafood, white meats and risotto."
