90 POINTS | Cameron Douglas, MS.
Goodness only knows that Clearview have a special affinity with Chardonnay and, with winemaker Matt Kirby at the helm, the wines have never looked better. A robust Hawkes Bay Chardonnay from a producer synonymous with that style, White Caps brings back the glory days when Chardonnay was fully loaded with buttery mouthfeel and rich toasty oak characters. Great buying for fans of the old school style.
The winery writes "Due to popular demand we are going back to the excesses of the 1980's with loads of oak, buttery toast and massive tropical fruit. Handpicked, estate grown fruit. Full malolactic fermentation. Wonderful palate drive. "
