FIVE STARS 93 POINTS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
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.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "This is a deliciously rich chardonnay; the gorgeous bouquet shows grilled peach, citrus, nougat, vanilla and butterscotch characters, followed by a succulent palate that is supple and fleshy. It is brightly fruited and generously weighted, backed by creamy texture and well-integrated acidity. At its best: now to 2019."
