A top notch Hawkes Bay Chardonnay. Fruit driven, barrel fermented and drinking beautifully. It rates very highly on the sheer drinkability scale. Our advice. Ship it in.
The winery writes "The 2021 ‘Bergman’ Chardonnay has again been barrel-fermented. This wine shouts ripe stone-fruits, juicy rockmelon and a biscuit toast note. The indigenous yeast and malolactic fermentation have created an appealing full bodied mid palate. It is vibrant with an intersection of flavours, i.e. there are taste sensations in all directions. It is inviting now and delivers on the promise."
