Babich Irongate Chardonnay 2017

4.5 STARS | Michael Cooper
4.5 STARS & RECOMMENDED | Winestate

A famous Hawkes Bay Chardonnay and the flagship white wine in the Babich portfolio. Irongate is always a study in refinement and balance where the emphasis is on the fruit, oak and acid components working together in real harmony. Irongate Chardonnay is a respected cellar performer though the 2017 is already delicious and complete. Highly recommended.

Details
Michael Cooper writes "Babich's flagship Chardonnay. A stylish wine, Irongate was traditionally markedly leaner and tighter than other top Hawke's Bay Chardonnays, while performing well in the cellar, but the latest releases have more drink-young appeal. It is based on hand-picked fruit from the shingly Irongate Vineyard in Gimblett Road, fully barrel-fermented (about 20 per cent new), and lees-matured for up to 10 months. Malolactic fermentation was very rare up to the 2002, but has since exerted a growing influence. The 2017 vintage (4.5*) is a full-bodied, very youthful wine. Tightly structured it has strong, fresh, grapefruit and peach flavours, finely integrated oak adding complexity, excellent delicacy and harmony and a long finish. Best drinking 2020+."
